Mt. Kilimanjaro: Tucker & Team Climb Barranco Wall, Arrive Karanga Camp

Hello,
This is RMI Guide Mark Tucker checking in from the Karanga camp on Kilimanjaro, situated at about 13,160’, or 4011 meters above sea level.  We are looking so good. Having a gas - wish you guys were here.  We have the most amazing night out. The moon is getting fuller and brighter as we speak.  We are poised for our next push to the Barafu Camp tomorrow which will be our high camp.  Things worked out very well today, we timed our selves perfectly for the ascent of the Barranco Wall, which is right out of camp, some step traverses, some ledges and face, several rock bands. Just really fun climbing. Everybody did great and we took some really nice hero photos. Then we did a traverse, only a couple miles today, and into this camp. And we’re on the impressive south side of Kilimanjaro with the Diamond, Heim, Kersten, Decken Glaciers hanging right above us.  It’s quite a sight.  So, the weather is holding and everyone on the team is healthy.  They are definitely keeping our kitchen staff busy keeping those pots filled.  No loss of appetite for this crew.  We are doing so well in and we are psyched up.  We had a bit of a summit talk today, passing along some information going over some tactics that will be useful in the near future. So all is well, and we will check in tomorrow.
