Jessica Biel and a group of celeb activists were temporarily stopped by a blizzard Monday in their climb to reach Africa's highest peak, Mount Kilimanjaro, for the charity Summit on the Summit.

Also on the hike are actor Emile Hirsch, rapper Lupe Fiasco and United Nations executive Elizabeth Gore.

"It's pretty gnarly," Gore said Monday of the inclement weather the group faced in their trek up the 19,340 feet mountain. "The visibility is only 10 feet in front of you. And it's cold. I've got six layers on... Jess is doing awesome. She continues to bring levity, yet seriousness, at the same time. We've played every game you can imagine."

The purpose for the exhausting effort, Biel said, is to raise awareness and money for the global clean water crisis; for more info, check out http://www.summitonthesummit.com.
