Hey everyone, this is Sarah calling from Kilimanjaro with Team Kichaa, and I am calling from Mweke Camp. And it’s about 7:15 in the evening and we are headed in for dinner, after a very long day.
We got up around 11pm, headed out of camp about midnight on a beautiful starry night, that was nice and calm and windfree, and we had a beautiful evening for the summit. And I am happy to say that we had 13 out of our 14 climbers reach the summit and we had one climber turn around at 17… (transmission cuts out)… the evening of climbing. So we got up to the summit somewhere around 6:30 in the morning and got to watch the sunrise over Africa, gorgeous…. (transmission garbled)… so we felt pretty darn lucky up there. Standing on the rooftop of Africa at 6:30 in the morning!
We headed down, after we spent some time on the summit and took some summit pictures and… (transmission cuts out)… and walked all the way down to Mweke Camp (which is 10,200 feet). We are happy…. (transmission cuts out)… folks took a nice nap this afternoon and all is well. We’ll call you soon!
