Elevation: 19,340'

Jambo from Mweka Camp,

We had a great summit day and the entire team reached the summit at 7:50 AM. It started about 11:45 PM last night when the alarm went off, and soon after we were dressed and packed for the climb. After a quick breakfast we threw on our backpacks and started up the trail. The team did a great job of climbing the 4,000’+ to the top, and the weather cooperated with us the whole way, with a little wind to start, but was almost calm while we were on the summit. It took us 7 hours total to reach the top, and after spending about 45 minutes on top, we began our descent down to our last camp on the mountain, Mweka Camp.

Everybody did very well today. Now we are settled into our tents and looking forward to a good night’s rest. We’ll get an early start tomorrow and finish the last section of our trek, descending to Mweka Gate.

Best regards,
RMI Guide Jeff Martin
