Hey guys. I'm South African and thought I'd share this story of five climbers who summited Mt. Kilimanjaro barefoot. Quite a feat!

As a barefoot hiker myself, that is very inspiring!  The lower portion looked fairly easy but man, how they made it through the snow is amazing.  Makes me take another look at my sniveling  Cry when the trail gets a little rocky...  Thanks for posting the link.

Sure, no problem!

It is quite an achievement. I'd also like to attempt something like that sometime!
