Hello all.

It was a beautiful day here on Kilimanjaro today. Clear skies and relatively warm weather made for an enjoyable day.

The team easily climbed the 1,000-foot high and intimidating Barranco Wall on our way to camp today. We made our way via a series of broken ledges and small steps and we were in awe of how easily the porters climbed this wall while still balancing their loads on their heads.

We are currently resting at Karanga Camp, which sits above the great Karanga Valley and has views of the towns far below.

Everyone is doing well and we are in good spirits!
