Kilimanjaro:  Tucker & Team Arrive at High Camp

As we went to bed last night at Karanga Camp we were rewarded with a clear skies and a beautiful sunset.  We left the Karanga Camp this morning en route for our high camp on Kilimanjaro, Barafu located at 15,000’.

The infamous Kili Natural Arch showed itself on our climb.  The arch is ;ocated on the ridge between the Breach Wall and the Great Baranco I would guess it stands a few hundred feet tall with a large opening.  It may be an expedition in it’s self but is a beautiful sight from a far.  As we climbed out of camp this morning the skies were clear above for views of the Heim,Kerstin and the Deken glaciers.  As we climbed higher we noticed the lack of vegetation and commented about the the moon scape effect. 
The team made good time to Barafu Camp and just as we pulled in it began to sleet/ rain.  Lucky for us the tents were set up and we headed for the shelter of our personal and dining tents.  The rain has stopped and the skies have cleared a bit.  There are still a few clouds both above and below us.

Our plan for this evening is an early dinner followed by a short rest and hopefully some sleep before we are aroused at midnight for our summit attempt.  Summit night is upon us!

The team is in good shape and high spirits, just a bit of good weather and some luck should get us to the Roof of Africa.

We will check in again soon!
