Did the KU alumni who were going to climb Mount Kilimanjaro make it to the top?
Yes. Todd Thompson, one of the group members, said the group members succeeded last month in placing a sticker of a Jayhawk on the sign atop the 19,340-foot-tall mountain in Tanzania.
"I can tell you it was horrible to go up," Thompson said. "It rained on us for the first three days, and the first day it was a mudslide/downpour. The last day was a six-hour hike at midnight; we hiked for seven hours, and the last three I suffered from altitude sickness, but still made it."
