Kilimanjaro: Team Reaches High Camp ready for Summit Bid

Hi Everyone,

The team did a great job again on the short hike up to our high camp. It’s been a long journey but everyone is in good spirits and we are all excited about tonight’s climb.Our plan is to wake at midnight, have a quick breakfast and then be walking by 1am. If all goes according to plan then we hope to be on the summit just after sunrise.We will spend the next few hours resting, preparing our gear and hopefully getting a little sleep too.

The climb will break down into one hour stretches with 10-15 min. breaks between each hour. Our pace will be slow but steady with lots of breathing as we ascend to “The Roof of Africa” 19’340ft above sea level. We’ll do our best and will try to call from the summit.

Wish us luck!
