Kilimanjaro Update

Colby Coombs called in last night (their morning) and all is well. They are doing a great job working together and moving higher up - so far everyone is doing well with the altitude and terrain and route is great. They said the food and local help is really doing a great job and they are really kind and helpful. They are focused on this climbing challenge and getting some good research accomplished as well.  They are a strong well connected team.

According to their itinerary....

"A short but steep climb up grassy slopes is rewarded by superb panoramas of the Kenyan plains to the north. We leave vegetation behind shortly before reaching the next camp at Mawenzi Tarn Camp (4,330m/14,206f), spectacularly situated in a cirque beneath the towering cliffs of Mawenzi. The afternoon will be free to rest or to explore the surrounding area as an aid to acclimatization. "
