Mount Kilimanjaro

Mt. Kilimanjaro is commonly referred to as a “trekking peak” in the climbing community, requiring no previous experience or technical skill to complete successfully. Although the peak has a high number of summiteers each year, the highest rate of success is among those with good cardiovascular fitness. Is Kilimanjaro on your bucket list? From planning and conditioning to execution, Kilimanjaro is a very accessible peak for Virginians. Presenter Jeff Reynolds, with over 34 years of climbing experience and a 100% success rate on Kilimanjaro, will discuss the fundamentals from “great idea” to a successful summit day. You’ll learn about planning, fitness, logistics, gear, altitude, safety, and your winning advantage. Jeff is an international mountain guide for S2Mountaineering and has successfully led hundreds of high alpine trekking and climbing expeditions in South America, North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia.

The program, for ages 12+, will be held in the Henrico County Administrative Board Room, 4301 East Parham Road.  Seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information, contact Will Hill at 652-1417.
