Elevation: 15,000'

Hi this is Seth, checking in from 15,000’ on Kilimanjaro. 

We have enjoyed another great day on the mountain.  As we left our Shira Plateau Camp we ascended to 15,000’ and everyone on the team reached a new high altitude record today.  This is a great mountain to push your personal altitude records as our packs are light and we are ascending without crampons, ice axes and other alpine climbing gear.  We’re about to drop back down about 2,500’ to our camp for tonight.  Tonight’s camp is set at the base of the great Barranco Wall, a steep canyon emerging from Kilimanjaro’s southern side. 

We will check in again tomorrow.
