Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team at Barranco Camp

Elevation: 12,800'

Jambo from Barranco Camp!

The team had their best night of sleep yet.  We were walking in the fog this morning and still no views of the upper mountain.  It was perfect hiking weather and altitude records for the group over 14,800’.  We all cruised into camp looking and feeling well.  The hike took 6 hours and 15 minutes.  Some sun and the first view of the upper mountain was a treat to us all here at Barranco Camp, which is just under 13,000’.  Lots of photos with the unique giant groundsel tree that grows at this elevation. We are planning on rolling slow out of camp tomorrow because of the short distance to Karanga Camp. The team was happy to hear they get to sleep in.

The team continues to do well.  We had some communication problems yesterday so we apologize for not getting a dispatch out.  We’ll check in tomorrow from Karanga Camp.
