This section will be used to give a very brief overview of the actual climb of Mt Kilimanjaro with very little discussion. Over the next while I plan to post more detailed descriptions and discussion in smaller sub-sections and also … Read More
Well we did it and we made it to the top! On Saturday, March 15 we made an early push for the summit and our whole group made it to the top. We battled crazy headaches, low blood oxygen levels and remained in surprisingly good moods during the ascent that took 10 hours from 6am … Read More
