Jenifer recently completed a Winter Mountaineering course and was a very quick learner, keen to progress onto more technical terrain. She certainly enjoyed her weekend and inspired to do both more rock climbing at home and come back for more winter climbing.
4th Aug: Dave has called to say weather has sadly stopped play. The team has seen a huge amount of snowfall in the last 48 hours which meant they could not make their summit bid and descend safely to base camp, so the tough decision was made to head down while the going was good.
18th April: David has just phoned in to let us know that Lee, himself and the climbing sherpas reached the summit this morning at 9 a.m, so Congratulations! Jacqui unfortunately was not feeling 100% so opted to stay at High Camp at 5250m and Sarah reached 5450m before turning back.
14th Jan – 100% SUCCESS – The team set off for the summit at 12am on the morning of the 13th. Making strong progress they all made it to Gilman’s point by 5am. They continued up to Uhuru peak reaching the summit at 6.45am. After experiencing a fantastic sunrise on a clear morning and spending a short time taking photos at the top they headed back down to Kibo hut, arriving at 9am. A short while later after some rest and a bite to eat they descended to Horombo hut camp in 3 hours where they earned a good nights sleep, helped along by some celebratory alcohol. On the 14th the group trekked down to the park gate and traveled back to the hotel.
4th Jan SUCCESS – All the team reached the summit of Uhuru Peak on Kilimanjaro this morning. The team are tired but jubilant. They will have their last night of camping at Mweka tonight before trekking back down to Mweka gate and then travelling back to Moshi. A big ‘well done’ to all the team.
