Can you believe Jessica’s climbing the highest mountain in Africa?

No, you didn’t misread that. Jessica Biel really is currently climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. She’s one of several celebrities taking part in “Summit on the Summit,” which aims to raise money and awareness about the global water crisis. The group began their ascent on Jan. 7 and as of right now (5 p.m. on Jan. 9) they have made it to 13,219 ft. Only 6,122 ft to go — you can do it, Jess!

“I slept like hell last night,” Jessica said Jan. 8 in a video post on the organization’s Web site. “I went to the bathroom every two hours, and this morning I was thinking, ‘What did I get myself into?’ But I feel like now that the first night’s over, I know what to expect.”

Jess is getting lots of support from her friends on Twitter, and her “7th Heaven” co-star Beverley Mitchel is her biggest cheerleader. “So proud of Jess on @SOTSK Climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro to raise awareness for the water crisis!” she tweeted today. “Way to go! I love you girl. Follow the climb!”
