It was my second attempt. The first failed at 18,300 on the Rongai route due to high altitude cerebral oedema brought on due to too rapid ascent and not enough fluid (my water supply began to freeze and my thoughts were too slugish for me to sort the situation). My second attempt had me at Gillmans point half an hour before dawn, enough time to thaw my camera for the dawn shots. by 7:15 AM I was on the summit and crying and living a dream. I was on the summit of Kilimanjaro!!!!!!
