Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team Descend to Mweka Camp

Our team had a great summit day on Kilimanjaro.  As we left Baranco Camp, our high camp, at 15,000’ on our summit attempt there was a thin layer of clouds that insulated us and provided a nice temperature for our midnight climb.  The beautiful and bright moon lit our way and our headlamps remained in our pack.  As we reached Stella Point, 18,680’, the wind picked up and we added more layers of clothing as we continued our ascent.  As we reached the true summit of Kilimanjaro, Uhuru Peak, the winds subsided and we enjoyed spectacular views in all directions. 

We have now reached Mweka Camp at 10,000’ and our last camp on the mountain.  It has been a long day and everyone is tired from their efforts ascending and descending this mountain.  I would like to thank the team for a great job on the climb and for the mountain for allowing us to stand on the summit today.
