As of 6 PM on Friday our climbers were at Barafu Hut (14,930 feet) which is the base camp for the final ascent. They just finished a briefing with the guides for the ascent climb. Following supper they all will rest until 11 PM. After consuming tea and snacks they will hit the trails. They will leave at midnight for a six hour climb to Stella Point and ultimately to Uhuru Peak at 5,895 meters or 19,340 feet.
Everyone is in good health and in good spirits. Madonna promises “We will do our best to make you proud.”
