Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team Descend to Final Camp

Hello,
This is Mark Tucker checking in from Kilimanjaro.  A group of happy climbers are crawling into their tents as I write this dispatch. It has been a long day, we have ascended more than 4,000’, descended over 9,000’ and stood as a team of nine climbers on the “Roof of Africa”.  Just another day in the office!

We left our High Camp, Barranco Camp, at 12:15 a.m. and were standing on top of Kilimanjaro, Uhuru Peak, 7:05 a.m. It was a great team effort and everyone did a good job. 

Conditions on the mountain were perfect:  light wind, clear skies and a team hungry for the top. All of the months of training and the good techniques learned over our many days of climbing were put to good use. 
I am very proud of this team and am looking forward to more adventures with them.

For now, all we can think about is three more hours downhill tomorrow to reach the Mweka Gate and the drive to our hotel to a hot shower.
