17th August – SUMMIT SUCCESS!! ‘Just a quick one from Nairobi to let you know that we all made it up Kili ok. It took us 6 hours from the top camp after leaving at 1am. The timing was great as we got to Stella Point just as the sun came up and ahead of others on the mountain. A pretty quick descent saw us at the camp in the forest by mid afternoon. We’re back at the hotel for a meal with Daniel before the flight tonight.’ Rich
