Viewing Post for: 2013 Kilimanjaro Cancer Climb

Date: February 8, 2 pm
Location: Saddle Hut on Mt Meru, 11,700 feet. Partly cloudy, 60 degrees

Unrelenting uphill with unrelenting spectacular views. Still sign of water buffalo but we did not yet need to shoot one. Passed one lovely chameleons. Great hut with views toward Kili. White necked ravens very aggressive. Hikers not aggressive so far. Starting to feel a little altitude. Some pondering climbing Little Meru, 13,700 this afternoon if we cant get a volley ball game going. Tonight is summit night. We get up after midnight and climb to dawn over the daunting knife edge. Wish us luck. Top is 15,000 feet.

Hope your climb goes well. Lots of snow coming down tonight but nothing like in New England. Good luck.
