Kilimanjaro: Grom & Team Enjoy Views of Lava Tower

Jambo from Kilimanjaro!

Today we awoke to partly cloudy skies and descent views of Kilimanjaro looming above. Amazing to see how much new snow is on the mountain since it’s been a pretty wet winter here.

Our morning routine has been waking around 6:30 and getting everything in our tents packed up before heading into our very spacious dining tent for quite the feast.

We hit the trail once again around 8am and hiked for an hour before taking our usual 15-minute break, then back on the trail for another hour. All total today we hiked for just over seven hours before reaching camp which is set up and ready for us. Eventually the clouds rolled in and obscured the mountain for the final few hours.

Along the way we passed around the famous and beautiful Lava Tower, reaching just over 15,000ft, setting new altitude records for some of the team. Everyone enjoyed the day and there was plenty of good conversations amongst the crew.

Spirits are high!

Thank you. These reports are terrific! After reading many books on Kili, I am following your daily reports with some back knowledge and getting excited for our August 1st trek! The Cascade and Olympic Mtns. give us plenty of opportunity to snowshoe and scramble in knarly conditions. Bring it!
