IMG leader Max Bunce called on the sat phone to report that the entire IMG team reached Uhuru, the highest point on Kilimanjaro (19,341 ft; 5,895 m). The weather was cold and clear, so they were glad to have their warm parkas with them. Up high on the route there was still some snow on the ground from the storm last week, but the trail was kicked in well. The team are now on the way back down to Mweka Camp, at the treeline (about 11,000 feet). There is nothing better than a good sleep in the thick air of lower altitude, after a big day up high. Well done, team!
