Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team Move to Karanga

Mark Tucker checking in from Mt. Kilimanjaro 12,826’ at Karanga Camp.  We had an ascent of the Barranco Wall today.  More fun than fear.  We have some great photos,  that I can’t wait to see.  The Karanga Camp is situation a bit on a hillside so we had to get creative with our extra clothing to buffer up some of the slope.  Hopefully, it is not going to take away from a good night’s rest.  Everybody is pretty fired up for, really the start of the ascent, tomorrow morning.  We will move up to our high camp, spend a few hours of rest and then begin our climb tomorrow evening, early, early morning. 
We experienced intermittent clouds and a high of about 65 degrees today, cool, but not bad, reasonable weather.  We have a good view of the upper mountain from our camp here right now.  At times in the clouds, but a bright half moon above us and the team is doing well.  Wishing you were all here.  Maybe next time.
We’ll check in tomorrow.
