Kilimanjaro: Grom & Team Preparing for Summit Bid

Hello again everyone.

Day 5 and we have arrived at Kilimanjaro’s high camp, 15,000ft!

The team once again did a great job of getting to camp in just under our 3-hour target time. It was another nice day here this morning and now we are sitting in the clouds, which will make for perfect napping temperatures.

We have just finished another enjoyable lunch and have discussed the plans for our upcoming climb. Everyone seems excited and as usual, a little nervous too.

Our plan is to wake up at midnight, have breakfast at 12:30 p.m., and hopefully start our climb around 1 a.m. If all goes according to plan, we should reach the summit somewhere around 7 - 9 a.m. EAT (5 - 7 a.m. PST).

Wish us luck!
RMI Guide Casey Grom and crew
