George called on the sat phone to report that the whole team made it to Uhuru Peak, the true summit of Kilimanjaro. The weather was good and they were getting ready to start their descent. First they will go back down to Barafu for some rest and lunch, then continue on down to the Mweka Camp at the treeline. It makes for a long day, but everyone will feel so much better to get down to 11,000 feet, where the air is much thicker. Way to go, team!
