Craig John just called in from the summit of Kilimanjaro. This was his 19th summit, and he reports the coldest and windiest conditions that he’s ever seen on Kili. They climbed in down parkas pretty much the whole way. Nice work team! They’re heading down now, and eagerly anticipating a hot lunch back at Barafu. From there they’ll descend to their camp in the forest for a well deserved rest. It’s all down hill from here.
