Dmitry Ermakov, guide of the 7 Summits Club from Tanzania:
7 Summits, hello! This is Dmitry Ermakov from the summit of Kilimanjaro. Today, Fedor Konyukhov’s group climbed to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro, on Uhuru peak. One member got sick, and Anna and Alexander were able to reach only Stella Point. But, in principle, in such conditions as the weather was, it is a victory. Everything is fine with us, we are going down.
Almost all night the wind was so strong that it knocked down. Including even at the top there were strong gusts of wind. In fact, for all my years of being here on Kilimanjaro, I was for the first time at the top in such weather. But, thank God, everything is fine and everything worked out!
