Congrats for IMG guide Eben Reckord and the Kili crew, who called on the satellite phone from the crater rim, with news of their success. Eben reports that the climb went well, with 10 of 12 members reaching Uhuru Peak, the top of Africa. Before signing off, they wanted to know the score of the Super Bowl. Congrats to both teams! A long descent today brought the Kili crew all down to Mweka Camp, at about 11,000 feet, where the team is now enjoying thick air, a fine dinner from our Chagga cook team, and an incredibly satisfying and well deserved rest tonight. Tomorrow morning they will be heading down through the forest to the Mweka Gate and the hotel in Moshi.
