Mount Kilimanjaro Trip Report (#4018)

Reached Stella Point at 6.30am after 6 1/2 hours of gut-wrenching, soul-searching effort and a heavy dose of good fortune. Passed numerous casualties of altitude sickness during this time, unable to continue.
Keep drinking and eating as much as you can for as long as you can (Kendal Mint Cake worked wonders for me!)
It's just as much a mental challenge as it is a physical one. But perhaps most importantly, remember to enjoy it!
