Update from Kilimanjaro and Operation Climb

 

So if you count a garbled phone call where all I heard was “Hi it’s me.” before it ended, then yes I have heard from Max, Ben, Howard and James this  morning.  However, since I know Mrs. Stickler’s class is following Ben’s trek and their last day of school is tomorrow, I will use the information from the guide so everyone will know the plan which I can only assume they’re following to stay on track with the pacing.

Day 3 (yesterday):  A 3-4 hour trek from Shira 1 to Shira 2 Camp where they will camp at 3,840 M.

Day 4 (today):  Trek from Shira 2 to Moir Camp (about 3 hours) where they will camp at 4,200 M.

Day 5: (Friday):  It is a 3 hour trek to Lava Tower Camp.  They will camp at 4,600 M.

Day 6: (Saturday):  From Lava Tower Camp, trek 2 hours to Arrow Camp for rest and lunch.  Then continue on for another 3 hours to the rim of the crater for dinner and overnight at the camp on the crater rim.

Day 7: (Sunday):  Rise in to time to begin final ascent to the top of Kilimanjaro.  It’s a 1 hour hike to Uhuru Peak, followed by the descent to Mweka Camp (4 hour trek) for overnight.

Day 8: (Monday):  Trek 3-4 hours to reach the Mweka Gate to pick up your Summit Certificate before returning to Arusha.

Climbing Mount Kilimanjaro takes you through 4 separate eco-systems.  You start in montane forest, weaves through a rain forest, hits an alpine desert and ends in arctic conditions.

Best,

Anne
