Reflections on Climbing Mt. Fuji – Part 2

From Station 7 to Station 9 ––

I will let the photo gallery tell most of the story.

Two points worth noting.  First, upon reaching Station 8 the sole of my left boot fell off the shoe.  Desperate, I asked another climber if he had any tape?  To my surprise, he offered up a small role of adhesive tape and Keiko did a great job of securing the sole back onto the shoe.

Second, reaching Station 9 and being able to see the sunrise and having the summit in view was a deeply emotional moment.  I was both proud and thankful of safely reaching this point.

Keiko, Kase and I celebrated and rested, seeking renewed energy to make the final push to the summit.
