Sheldon called in from the summit of Kilimanjaro at midnight, Pacific Time, last night. Lots of hooting and hollering going on in the background. All climbers were standing with her on the summit of Uhuru. She also called back later to let me know that everyone had made a safe and successful descent to high camp, Barafu. Repacking had been done and they were all sitting down to a hot lunch prior to making the last few hours hike down to Mweka Camp (10,000’). Long, rewarding day. Super nice to be back to the land of thick air. They will sleep like logs tonight.
