Kilimanjaro: Grom & Team Arrive at High Camp

Well we've finally arrived at Kilimanjaro's High Camp! It was a very short jump from Karanga camp up to Barafu camp, which is our launching point for the summit. The team did great and we arrived in just over three hours and shortly before some light snow started falling. I won't mention any names, but one climber from Canada accidentally put their pants on backwards, which brought a little laughter this morning. Everyone is currently relaxing or getting packed up for tonight's climb to the highest point on the African continent. This evening we'll have a summit talk where we discuss the teams strategy for tomorrow and then it will be off to bed right after dinner to get a little sleep before starting to climb around midnight. The team is celebrating John Ready's 30th birthday today. Hopefully it's one he'll always remember! Keep your fingers crossed for us, and there's a chance, weather permitting, some of you back home might receive a satellite phone call from the summit. So keep your phones handy. My best guess is we'll be on the summit around 8 am our time. RMI Guide Casey Grom and the Kilimanjaro crew!
