The fantastic news has just reached us that Team Alpine has made it to the summit!!!!!
Unfortunately Gerallt had to turn back at 5000 metres due to exhaustion, dizziness and shortness of breath, he must be feeling very disappointed not to have been able to go that last bit but with altitude sickness it is better to listen to your body. I'm sure he will be pleased to know the rest of his team made it. We all hope he is feeling better now he's at lower altitude.
What a wonderful achievement, the team must be so so happy, everyone back here at the Alpine Coffee Shop is very proud of them and all the awareness they've raised for Orangutan Appeal UK and Ape Action Africa.
Please keep the donations coming in, share our Just Giving page with your friends, it's so important we look after our ape friends.
