Congratulations are in order for Dustin and his team on Kilimanjaro. 100% on the true summit. Perfect weather and the team could not have performed better. No issues with the descent and everyone is now all the way down to Mweka Camp. The air is a lot thicker and a bunch warmer at 10,000’. They’ve had their last dinner on the trail and all are grabbing some serious zzzz’s. Just a super job by all – our climbers, the entire Chagga guide staff and crew and Dustin. Everyone did their part and the weather cooperated.
They’ll walk the last few hours tomorrow morning to the Mweka Gate, where they’ll check out with the Park Service, grab certificates and head back to the hotel. Showers, a final dinner together and a little celebrating will be in order. Dustin will be heading off the next morning for a climb of Mt. Meru and our members will be doing their own safari to Serengeti and Ngorongoro after the climb. This has been a seriously good trip. We’ll try to get Dustin to write up a short description of his Meru climb for those who might be considering it in the future. Well done, team.
