Important notice: Clarifying the location of updated climber locations

March 6th, 2010

Until a little over a week ago, climbers who were about to fly out to Africa to begin their climb were given a link to share with their friends and with members of their family, allowing their movements to be tracked while on the mountain. This link would have sent interested trackers to this page. By last week however, it had become obvious to us that finding climber icons at the end of a very long list of safari and climb locations, was quite challenging. We felt that it was also not very clear to prospective trackers how to use the facility. Read the rest of this entry »
