Kilimanjaro: Grom and Team Ready for Summit Bid

Jambo Everyone back home.

Well we’ve finally arrived at our high camp, after a good nights rest and a short hike up to 15’000 ft. It has been mostly sunny all day with great views of Kilimanjaro and our route for tomorrow. Everyone is doing well and feeling good at this new altitude which is a good sign for things ahead.

The team just wrapped up lunch and discussed in great detail the plan for tomorrow’s climb. Everyone knows what what we’ll be wearing and what will be in the pack as well as the schedule. Our game plan will be to wake at 11 pm and have a quick breakfast at 11:30, then hopefully hit the trail right at midnight. Normally we try to leave a touch later, but there are quite a few climbers here tonight so we’re going to try and get a jump-start on most of them.

I’m expecting the team to reach the summit in 7 to 8 hours if things go according to plan. There have been several rounds of trivia with the winner getting a chance to make a satellite phone call from the summit. So everyone back home please keep your phones handy and if you receive a call from a strange number please answer.

That’s all for now. And keep your fingers crossed for us!

RMI Guide Casey Grom and the Kili Crew
