AMS Guide Colby Coombs phoned in last night. It was their morning and they had begun their summit day attempt. This is the steepest and by far the most demanding part of this climb. They were feeling strong and Master Chief Will Wilson was leading the pack for their start out of camp. It was planned to be a very, very long day as it is for each and every climber of Kilimanjaro.
Colby said "Here we are just looking out over Africa. There is a thin cloud layer below us and it looks like it's going to be a beautiful day to be on Kilimanjaro."
Upon return from this long day, they will stay at high camp another night and then begin their descent.
