Day 3: Shira 2 (3840m) to Lava Tower (4630m) to Baranco Camp (3950m)
From January 19 to 28, 2017, I traveled to Tanzania to climb Africa's highest mountain, Mount Kilimanjaro.
I did so in honor and memory of my late girlfriend, Sueyoung Yoo, who passed away in 2015 from a ruptured brain aneurysm.
Sueyoung was a talented piano player and vocalist. She always had a smile on her face and a vibrant, positive attitude. You can learn all about her at www.Sueyoungyoo.com.
The climb up Kilimanjaro lasted 5 and 1/2 days. I have created a blog entry for each day of the climb, combined with pertinent information about brain aneurysms. Just click the links on the menu at the top of this page.
I hope these posts capture the beauty of the mountain and the challenge in climbing it, while spreading awareness about brain aneurysms.
If you would like to make a donation to the Brain Aneurysm Foundation in her memory, you can do so at www.sueyoungyoobaf.com.
