Mt. Kilimanjaro: Justman & Team Reach High Camp

Elevation: 15,000'

Here we go!

Our team is set at 15,000 feet at Barafu Camp on Kilimanjaro. Everyone is getting excited for a great summit day. The prediction is for sunny and clear skies. So it’s down to business as usual here in camp. We are recovering with hot drinks and a great lunch prepared by our Camp Chef.

It is at this point that all our physical preparation pays off. However, as I told my team, at a certain altitude the physical shuts off and it turns all mental. You have to stay positive and have the strength to overcome adversity to summit the highest mountains in the world. And Kilimanjaro is no different.

Wish us luck!
