You lead, daughter!
As you can see( above ), Moore and a few climbing mates went particularly close with one another while clambering the mountain and pushing through unusually cold temperatures and blustery winds.
“On the night of our ascent to the summit, we woke up at 11 pm( after a few hours of napping) to enjoy a got a couple of anxious minutes together with a goblet of coffee before it was time to gear up in my our warmest mantles and start the nearly 8 hour trek to highest point in Africa- 19,341 ft. In total darkness, we took it pole spar( slow retard) and trudged through torrent, sleet and snow, where apparently everything on our party managed to freeze( water bottles, backpacks, our eyelashes, hair, digits, toes, etc …) Strangely, I’ve never experienced more determined to tackle such a physical defy before and hitherto the combined elements of exhaustion and excessively cold weather made it often trickier than any of us were developed for.
All of that aside, eventually reaching the threshold of the real summit was more emotional and overwhelming than I had felt possible. Kilimanjaro expects a lot from those who traverse her courses. You have no choice but to show up. And we did. There’s nothing more empowering than realizing that we are all capable of so much more than we render ourselves credit for.”
She’s been posting about it for a while now, more( below ):
And we’re off. #CountdowntoKili has arrived. I’ve been daydream of seeing her and doing this since I was 18. Couldn’t be more grateful for this crew and everything this experience is bound to be. Let’s do this!A post shared by Mandy Moore (@ mandymooremm) on Mar 23, 2018 at 12:13 am PDT
I have dreamed the dream of climbing Mt Kilimanjaro since persons under the age of 18. Thanks to @eddiebauer, my partner in this adventure, this past week encountered# 1 on my container list be coming home with fruition and I lived out one of the most rewarding and challenging ordeals of “peoples lives” with a few of my best friends. There was no reception on the mountain so I’m going to dole out some pics of our trip over the next few eras. Stay tuned-it’s worth noting! #liveyouradventure #ebcontributer #whyihike #sponseredA post shared by Mandy Moore (@ mandymooremm) on Mar 30, 2018 at 10:40 am PDT
Meet @ lynseydyer: @EddieBauer athlete, master and philanthropist( and new pal ). She helped steer us to the top of this beautiful mountain; an integral part of this climb and this crew. She’s an absolute bad-ass in all things large-scale mountain freeskiing and in life. Get to know her. I sure do feel lucky that this expedition brought us in to each other’s lives. #EBContributor #LiveYourAdventure #sponsoredA post shared by Mandy Moore (@ mandymooremm) on Mar 31, 2018 at 9:24 am PDT
