From 15,400' Kevin Cherilla reports excellent progress for the team thus far. The team is moving into the most difficult section of Kilimanjaro. Darol will use the the One-Off climber with large wheels so he can navigate the loose Scree. The climber is also equipped with a hand powered winch so he can crank himself up the steep vertical sections. The very last section of the climb will be completed with the use of a rescue device designed by Skedco. Darol will lay on his back and crank his body to the summit. Robert French, Darol's team doctor celebrated his 40th Birthday yesterday. Robert and the team enjoyed Birthday cake sent by his girlfriend Gabriel.
