June 19, 2024 Machame Camp (Phunuru Sherpa) Wet day at Machame Camp (Phunuru Sherpa) Phunuru called to say that the team were safe and sound up at Machame Camp (nearly 10K, at treeline) after a good dinner and under clearing skies.  Earlier today was quite wet for their trip up from Moshi, through the forest.   It was a good reminder for why we take the time to do the gear checks before starting, so we have the right gear to stay comfortable and have fun, even in challenging weather.  Everyone is in good spirits and looking forward to a good sleep tonight ..read more

June 12, 2024 Phunuru reports that the team had a nice climb today to Uhuru Peak, the true summit of Kilimanjaro.  They departed Barafu Camp about 1am as planned, reaching the Crater Rim at dawn.  It’s good to see some snow up on the summit, which made everything looks very alpine for their traverse around the Crater to Uhuru Peak, the true summit.  Their descent went smoothly and now everyone is back down in the Mweka Camp at treeline for the night.  Tomorrow they will be up early for the final part of the descent to the Mweka Gate and then back to Moshi.  Well don ..read more

June 11, 2024 Phunuru reports that the team made it up to the Barafu Camp today in time for some well-deserved rest this afternoon.  After getting packed for tomorrow and an early dinner, they all bedded down for a short sleep, with the plan to be up at midnight and walking at 1am.  This should put them near the summit in time for the sunrise!  The spectacular weather has been holding for the team, though it has been a bit windy at times.  We’ll wish the team the best for the climb and look forward to hearing from them later today ..read more

(Phunuru) Phunuru reports that the team had a nice hike today up to Shira Camp about 12,300 feet.  After leaving the Machame Camp they climbed out of the forest into the moorland zone, where they start to see the “weird plants” like Lobelia and Groundsel that only live at high altitude near the Equator.  The Shira plateau is a remnant of an old volcano and marks the point where the team will start traversing around the south side of the mountain (for the next three days). Everyone is doing well and the entire team ..read more

June 8, 2024 IMG climbers on the summit (Justin Merle) It’s no lie that the spring season down here in Washington has been a bit rough for us with consistent stormy weather.

IMG Lead Guide Tyler Nachand and the rest of the team reached Mt. Rainier’s crater rim at 4:45 this morning!
