I got lost on December 30 for 6 hours...was found by a porter and taken to Barafu Camp. On Dec. 31, our team toasted the New Year in and then began the last 6 hrs climb to Stella's Summit. We saw the sun rise. Many of us got altitude sickness, some turned back, 10 of 18 of us made it, 2 going all the way to Uruhu Peak. Unfortunately 2 people (not from our group) died that day, a man from Germany, age 56 and another from America, age 51. Terrible.
We are glad to be alive.
