Climbers arrive to Arusha

Here we go. With the recent weather troubles in Europe, things have been a little rough starting, with one climber unable to make it here in time to Start. Don’t be deterred Chris W- Kili will wait, we are sorry you could not join. Today (Tue 21 Dec.) was filled with lots of action as we got prepared to leave for the mountain in the morning. It is pouring currently, and we are getting tucked into bed 🙂 We all enjoyed a nice dinner tonight offsite, and are psyched to head out bright and early. Ryan was happy to have his lost bag arrive in time for departure- Merry Christmas! Stay tuned for our cyber-calls from the mountain. Happy Holidays everyone.
