No Fear on Kilimanjaro – 1 Year Later

As many of your might remember, last January a group of climbers were killed by a freak rock avalanche on the Western Breach of Mount Kilimanjaro. 3 climbers died and a number of people were injured. I was on the mountain just a few days before that with my group and had some idea on how devasting and difficult it must have been.

Well, a number of those climbers, who were less than 2000 ft from the summit, have decided to return to Kilimanjaro and attempt to make the summit.

I admire anyone who confronts their fears, and goes back to conquer the mountain. Of course, they could live those awful memories and feel sad about the terrible accident, but instead, they are coming back and going to take on the mountain. Good job!
