Mt. Kilimanjaro: Justman & Team Ascend the Great Barranco Wall

Elevation: 13,160'

We had our best day yet climbing on the lower slopes of Kilimanjaro today. By no means is it vertical rock climbing, however, ascending the Great Barranco Wall really makes you feel like you are climbing!

After we reached the top of the wall we traversed at an altitude of 14,500’. The weather didn’t turn on us. However, the clouds rose up and engulfed us in a light mist as we climbed the final section into camp. We are now nestled in at Karanga Camp and the entire team is doing fantastic!

Tomorrow is high camp. An then the summit so don’t go too far. We will have a summit report for you Sunday!!
