Kilimanjaro: Martin & Team Ready for Summit Bid

Hello from Barafu Camp,

We are at our high camp and ready for our summit attempt tomorrow! The team did great again today and everybody is excited to be here at 15,000’.
Today was a relatively short hiking day, climbing about 2,000’ in just under three hours and reaching camp before noon. This is another great benefit to the Machame Route. Having a short day right before summit day allows us plenty of time to rest, hydrate, pack and get to bed early all in preparation of tomorrow. We’ll have dinner at 5:00 and then hopefully be in bed by 6:30 at the latest. Most of us probably won’t sleep much, but our bodies will get enough rest we need for the long day ahead.
The alarm is set for 11:45 pm, and the plan is to be walking out of camp around 12:45. About seven hours later, we should be standing on top of Kilimanjaro. Wish us luck and we will try and give a call tomorrow from the summit.

Best regards,
RMI Guide Jeff Martin
