Kilimanjaro Trek Training – Part III

June 15, 2012  By: Gretchen

Kim and Jenny are still training for their Kilimanjaro trek coming up in August.  This past weekend found Jenny on the summit of Arapahoe Peak in Colorado’s Indian Peaks wilderness with Arvind Mohanram, one of the people lucky enough to have snagged a spot on our special Friends and Family trek.

There’s no doubt that spending time at altitude and doing practice hikes (especially 14,000 ft+ summits) will help with your odds of making the summit of a mountain like Kilimanjaro.  Kim and Jenny are definitely putting the odds in their favor by substantial peaks and hiking all over Colorado this spring, as well as working on their cardio by biking to work.  Keep tabs here on the blog; we’ll keep this series going right up until their departure.  Then we’ll bring you coverage of their climb!

Want to summit ‘Kili’ yourself?  Give us a call and we can discuss the route that’s best for you.
