Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team at High Camp Ready for Summit Attempt

Elevation: 15,000'

We enjoyed a good night’s rest at Karanga Camp and woke to clear skies above Kilimanjaro.  The hike from Karanga to our high camp, Barafu Camp at 15,000’, took the team just three hours and we arrived to a nice hot lunch and every plate on the table was filled and emptied. 

Having a shorter day on the trail allows the team to rest, re-hydrate and re-fuel in preparation for our summit attempt tonight and we took full advantage.  Later this afternoon we discussed the details of our summit attempt from time of departure to clothing and rest breaks. 

So, with an early dinner tonight we are crawling into our sleeping bags a little earlier than usual and will be donning our headlamps in a few short hours to begin our ascent. Wish us luck!
