Expedition Team The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly all reached the roof of Africa!

The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly (call outs in background).

Hey everyone, we’re in Millenium Camp (at 12,200 feet). It is somewhere about 7 o’clock on the 17th and not much happened today, unless you count we all reached the roof of Africa (call outs and cheers in background)! In the wind, and the snow, and the hail, and the rain, but we’re happy campers, tired, ready for a good night’s sleep. Tomorrow we are going to walk ourselves down to the gate and head back to Arusha.

Casey would like to say “Hello”:
“Hey ya’ll, this is Casey. Just wanted to say thanks for following throughout the whole week, for our successful summit. Looking forward to seeing you all at Christmas in Palatine (spelling?). And Kelly, I need a ride home from the airport, just fyi.” (laughter in background)

And now Fran has a few words:
“Hey doodle, hope everything goes well tomorrow… (transmission garbled).”

Everyone sends all their best back home and we’ll give you one more shout out from Arusha, at our celebration dinner tomorrow night.

Small and easily overlooked, headlamps are extremely useful in the backcountry for pre-dawn alpine starts, late-night cooking sessions, and pretty much any other time a little extra light […]

  • Is My Training Working?

    Is my training working? Whether explicitly spoken or implied, this is the question many climbers ask of themselves, their friends, and perhaps their guides. At Alpine Ascents, we hear this question weekly. While the best answer to this question requires a comprehensive understanding of you and your objective, there are simpler ways to get a […]
