Why climb with Berg Adventures

Kilimanjaro Expedition Dispatches

Miles for Cystic Fibrosis Climb with Berg Adventures

Lemosho Traverse on Kilimanjaro, December 18 - 31, 2009

This traverse of Africa’s greatest mountain, Kilimanjaro, is a challenging and unique adventure. The Lemosho route begins at the rarely visited western edge of Kilimanjaro, bypassing more crowded approaches to the mountain. Kevin will traverse the wild and unspoiled Shira Plateau on his way to Kili’s Crater Rim.

After reaching BAI’s Crater Camp, he will go for the summit or take advantage of a night's rest in the crater before waking in the early morning to ascend to the top of Africa. With the ultimate experience of sleeping in the crater, he will get the opportunity to have a closer look at the marvels of Kilimanjaro towering glacial wall of ice.

With daily dispatches he will keep you informed of his progress and experiences. Stay tuned!

About Miles for Cystic Fibrosis

Kevin is climbing for the charity Miles for Cystic Fibrosis, an Atlanta chapter of 65ROSES which is an organization built on the principal of raising money and awareness for Cystic Fibrosis.

Cystic Fibrosis is regarded by many as a marathon disease; it is a life-shortening genetic disease that greatly affects the lungs and their ability to process oxygen. Mucus build-up in the lungs makes each breath a struggle, similar to the hypoxic conditions experienced in high altitude climbing. Roughly 30,000 adults and children in the United States have the disease, and more are continuing to be diagnosed. Though there is currently no cure, advancements in medicine, drug treatments, and specialized medical care are helping to increase not only the life expectancy, but the quality of life for those affected as well.
