Elevation: 19,340'

This is JJ calling from the summit!  Climbing Kilimanjaro we had a lot of wishes, but one of them was that our entire team would reach the summit of Kilimanjaro together.  That is where we are right now.  I can’t say enough great things about this team.  The entire gang did a amazing job today!  We did a lot of hero shots by the sign at the summit. Going to spend a little more time on Uhuru Peak before we start our descent.  The team all says hi to family and friends.  We will touch base with you letting you know we are safe at camp. We had a fantastic day.  Take care everyone.

Thank you for following a long on our summit day.
Ciao, ciao from Kili!

Update 1:40 a.m. PST
Hi everyone, this post is going to be brief. First, all Kili climbers are back in camp safe and sound. Everyone made the summit on a terrific day. We are now refueling and packing up camp. We will head down to 10,000 feet making tomorrow’s exit of Kilimanjaro Park nice and casual.

How awesome that you’re standing on the roof of Africa looking at a majestic view and feeling such a wave of accomplishment - and all I was doing was grocery shopping and running routine errands!!  I am truly amazed by fantastic hurdles you’ve accomplished and so happy that all went so well.  Can’t wait to see pictures and hear the blow-by-blow details.  Much love Kalani and Dom!! See you soon!
