Kilimanjaro: Casey Grom and Team Reach The Barranco Wall

Hello Everyone,

We woke to mostly clear skies for the first time since leaving our hotel. We had the normal tea in our tents just before 7 and had another enjoyable breakfast of fresh fruit and eggs for breakfast. We then hit the trail shortly after 8 and made good time up the Barranco Wall. This wall is about 1,000’ high and is the steepest part of the entire climb requiring hands in a few places to assist us up a few steep steps. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the challenge and change of the new terrain. It was amazing to watch the porters easily navigate this terrain with their loads carefully balanced on their heads. We made good time and arrived in a little over 3 hours to our new home sitting at just over 13’000’.

We are incredibly thankfully to all of our porters and crew who have been working so hard to keep us well feed and comfortable thus far. You can’t imagine how they dismantle one camp shortly after we leave, to then have it reassembled before we arrive.

Enjoying being spoiled!

RMI Guide Casey Grom and Crew
