Kilimanjaro:  Ascending the Barranco Wall

Beautiful moon rise last night and a perfect morning. Slow roll out of camp, to tackle the infamous Barranco wall. About a half hour section of rock scramble that is more fun than fear, and we got some great photos. We did have to deal with some rain en route to Karanga Camp but we just had a solid hour of sunshine and most of the gear is back in good shape.

Some comments from the team:
Nate- Climb, Hike, Win…Aim High-Kili High
Will- Climb is going well, talk soon
Gary- Hi Vicky and girls, all having fun at wet Kili
Steve- Hi from Kili. Everything is POA {cool} ! On top Sunday !
Jan- Endlich mal Schnee auf dem Kili
Dave W.- Great adventure, fun people ! I hope there is beer at the top otherwise why are we doing this ?
Bob- Enjoy everyday on Mt. Areebaaa ! Missing everybody and you to Indy.
Tuck- thanks for all the support

Dave, I am so happy to be able to follow your trek. It sounds so exciting, but I’m glad it’s you and not me! Dad & I are so excited for you. Looking forward to the next blog.
We wish you all a safe and adventurous climb.
