The team is all doing well and headed off to bed now after a celebratory dinner. Thanks for following along on our adventure. It’s been another great trip on Kilimanjaro with a great group! Until next season! Ben Jones

Mount Kilimanjaro Cybercasts Archives
Alpine Ascents provides family and friends the opportunity to follow our climbs as they proceed. Utilizing state-of-the-art technology, we receive regular audio dispatches from the climbers and post them on our website. Not only does one feel the excitement of watching a team as it moves up the mountain, the archived cybercasts provide an excellent resource and learning tool when researching expeditions. Enjoy the show!
