Kilimanjaro: Grom & Team Ready for Summit Bid

Elevation: 15,000'

We’re at high camp!

It was another beautiful morning and the team made good time to our high camp which sits just over 15,000’. We have just finished our summit talk to make sure we are all prepared for tomorrow.  Everyone is feeling well and looking forward to tonight’s climb. We’ll be up early and the goal is to be walking at 1 a.m. If all things go according to plan, then we should reach the summit sometime around 8 in the morning.

We had another trivia challenge that will allow the winner a one minute call from the summit. So, if you live in Texas and your nick name is “ZuZu” keep your phone handy. And remember Texas is 9 hours behind.

That’s all for now. We’ll try to call from the top.

Wish us luck!
