Jambo!  We are at Kilimanjaro’s high camp, 15,200 feet!  We’ve been in and out of clouds all day but no precipitation.

The team did great coming up from Karanga Camp.  We practiced taking nice and efficient breaks today in prep for our summit bid tonight.  We came up with plenty of time to relax and get things organized for the night-time departure.

I’ll call in when we’re headed for the top.

Only about 4000” to go! If that atlas is correct, that is. Good luck, MA
