IMG guide Andy Politz reports by sat phone that the team had a beautiful summit day reaching Uhuru Peak, the highest point on the continent shortly after dawn. The descent went smoothly, and the team is now back to Mweka camp, at the upper limits of the forest zone.
Tomorrow they will finish off the descent down through the forest to the Mweka gate, for the checkout with the Kili Park rangers and getting their official Kili certificates. Then they will catch a ride in the Land Rovers back down to the hotel in Moshi, just in time for a late lunch, showers, and cold beer!
Up next… Safari!
