Kilimanjaro is affected by severe lightning storms at times and this season while on the mountain I have noted increased thunderstorms with significant episodes of lightning.

I'm guessing there is a typo in the article. Is his speed record on the 7 Summits or actually Worlds 7 highest?

its the 7 summits, i doubt it is a typo error, i think it is just that the editor didnt do enough research before writing the article.
