IMG Guide Olivia Cussen, one of the few IFMGA fully certified guides here in the US, called in again this morning to report that all is well on Kilimanjaro. The group knocked out 4000 vertical feet of trail yesterday, one if the harder days on the mountain, so it’s great to have that behind them while they continue to acclimatize to the higher elevations.
They’re at the Machame Camp now; tomorrow they’ll move through the “zone of weird plants” which are native to the high mountains of Africa en route to the Shira Plateau (12,000) where they’ll make camp.
All is well…
