Jessica Biel Reaches Mount Kilimanjaro Summit!

Jessica Biel and the Summit On The Summit expedition group have reached the Uhuru Peak of Mount Kilimanjaro!

The 27-year-old actress, joined by Lupe Fiasco, Kenna, Isabel Lucas and Emile Hirsch, reached the summit today at 19,340 feet around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday (January 12), according to People.

Jess and her fellow climbers posed with a sign reading “Send Water” – the group climbed the mountain to raise awareness of the planet’s water crisis.

“The thrill of conquering your fears, especially in such a physically and mentally taxing environment, can’t really be done justice in words,” Lupe said.

FYI: Jessica, Lupe, Isabel and Emile were all outfitted by Eddie Bauer/First Ascent: Front Point Jacket (hard shell), BC-1OO jacket (for rain), DownLight Sweater (down) and Pack.

    Jessica Biel and the others really did something spectacular. The global water crisis is really serious, and we should all take their example and try to help out people in developing countries.

    Congrats to Jessica and the other climbers. Any negative comments indicate jealousy and ignorance. It was done for a good cause and they are brave souls for giving it their all and getting it done.

    There are ways of increasing awareness without spending exorbitant wads of cash on an exotic vacation, which of course includes hotels, restaurants , 1st class flights, private climbing guides, climbing gear, a personal trainer to prepare you for the climb, and all else that is involved. I think # 4 said it right.

    @nancy: That’s really creepy, you’ve officially creeped me out posting that but I hope you’re having a nice death somewhere anyway!

    It’s not a very taxing environment if some of the hikers aren’t wearing gloves on the summit and no one has on a helmet or harness. It’s just a cold walk-up.

    wow… they must be in GREAT shape!! This is so hard.
    even in wikipedia it says that though most young, fit people can make the Uhuru summit, a substantial number of trekkers will abandon the attempt at a lower altitude.

    me me me Says:

    like #23 noticed, that descent is basically trekking not climbing, so they didn’t need crampons, axes etc., and i doubt the celebs were heavily loaded. still that’s a respectful altitude, especially for amateurs (everything over 5800 meters is considered extreme).
