Kilimanjaro: Grom & Team Nestled in at the Base of the Barranco Wall

Elevation: 12,800'

We departed the Shira Plateau this morning in a light mist.  Last night brought significant precipitation and muddied the trails a bit.  However, the night rain afforded us a beautiful view of the mountain and its new snow.  The day’s traverse provided great views of the landscape and curious vegetation.  About five hours from the onset, we walked down through rolling fog to our camp nestled underneath the Barranco Wall.  Spirits are high and bellies are full.  Tomorrow, we wake up early to traverse beneath the Southern Breach Wall.

Stay tuned,
RMI Climber Dan C.
