Kilimanjaro Climb & Safari

Kilimanjaro: Tucker and Team Reach New Altitude Record for Many

RMI Guide Mark Tucker checking in from Camp 3 Barranco camp on Kilimanjaro. Yet another beautiful day of hiking and climbing for the group, lucky, lucky, us. We are at about 12,800 feet now. We did get up to almost 15,000 feet today and broke a lot of people’s altitude records. Everyone did just fine.  We are staring up at the Barranco Wall which we will tackle in the morning. It’s actually a very fun part of the climb, a little bit of scrambling.  For tactical beat we are going to drag our feet a little bit in the morning.  There are a few other teams up here so we will let them get a head start and hopefully have the wall pretty much to ourselves which will be great photos and just a bit more fun.  It will be a little bit of a shorter day tomorrow getting to our next camp.  Some of the folks on a six day climb will push all the way to high camp tomorrow. But we’ll go ahead and split that into two days.  It really helps out for the success ahead. So, its a beautiful night outside.  I am staring up at the glaciers, what’s left of them - they have been dwindling, but who knows that could change.  I can’t ask for a better group of folks, we are having a fun time and everyone is just doing really well.  So fingers crossed, couple of more days of this and we will be heading for the summit.  Can’t wait.
