Today marks the second day of long ascents on Kili. The team have all arrived safely at the Shira Plateau. From here they will continue to hike around the mountain, staying relatively at the same altitude, 3800m.
A report came in around 8pm stating that they had hiked through hail, rain, and thunder all day. They were completely soaked by the time they made it to camp, but their spirits stayed strong. It is our guess that all are doing well, as they were notified from the beginning that Shira Plateau is the last point to turn around easily. Of course they don’t have to push on to the summit, but it gets more complicated from here out.
Once they made it to camp the sun came out and they spent the afternoon relazing and writing journals. Rumor still has it that the “hell box” documenting is still progressing nicely. We look forward to the report!
