Team: Poa, back in Arusha, end of Kilimanjaro Season

Hello Everyone,

Team Poa is officially off the mountain and onto Safari!

Everyone did great getting to the top of Africa and I appreciate their handwork!

I also want to thank our Tanzanian crew for an incredible two trips. Follow us again in June when the season begins again.

Team Poa: 100% success on the summit today!

Hello Everyone,

We ended up with a beautiful day on the summit of Kilimanjaro today at 19,341ft! Everyone on the team made it to the top and back down safely to our camp tonight at about 12,700ft (millennium camp). It was a long day but everyone did excellent today pushing themselves and by helping the entire team to a successful climb of Kilimanjaro. We just finished up our last supper here and are heading off to bed now. Tomorrow we have about a 5 hour hike to Mweka gate where we will be picked up and head back to Arusha. Thanks for following our adventure!
