RMI Guide Jeff Martin called from Mweka Camp (10,000’) after the team’s summit day.
The entire team reached the summit of Kilimanjaro today in great style.  They left Barafu Camp after midnight with their headlamps lighting the way and reached the “Roof of Africa” as the day broke over Tanzania.  After a quick celebration on top the team began their descent back to high camp where they were greeted with drinks and breakfast.  They continued down to Mweka Camp and the thick air of 10,000’ tired but in great spirits.

Congratulations to the team!
