I'm keeping this brief since I have to catch a shower and a plane.
03/10/2006, Nelion summit of Mt. Kenya
I am happy to report that Jamie, Dan and Michael had a long, but successful, summit of Nelion, Mt. Kenya yesterday! They reached the summit at approximately 4:30 PM after a long and involved climb. Everyone is tired, but happy, and in good health after an almost 24 hour summit day and nearly 15 rappels to get down. I hope that a hot tub and some well-deserved R & R are awaiting them. Congratulations guys!

Jamie's message today was from the high camp, Austria Camp. He reports that everyone is doing well and that the weather has been good. Tomorrow, they will be leaving for the summit before dawn. Nelion, one of Mt. Kenya's twin summits that require technical rock or ice climbing, is the route they are traveling. Jamie said that he most likely will not leave a message tomorrow so there will not be a posting tomorrow. We will all have to wait in suspense to hear about the summit day!
