Kilimanjaro: Martin & Team Greetings from Shira Camp

Hello from Shira Camp,

When we woke up this morning, it was crystal clear and the mountain was completely visible. The group wasted no time packing up camp and we were walking by 8:00. With the early start we completely avoided all the trail traffic and pretty much had it to ourselves for most of the day. We gained about 2,500’ total, reaching our high point at 12,500’. Everyone did extremely well today with both the terrain and the altitude. We stopped en route for a nice lunch before traversing up to the west to gain the Shira Plateau. We were in camp by 1:00 and had the whole afternoon to enjoy our new camp. We mostly sat around the dining tent talking about past adventures and tried our best to keep up with the tea and snacks that were being delivered non-stop.  We’ll head back to the dining tent around 6:00 for dinner and then settle into our tents for the evening.

Tomorrow is going to be a big day for us as we are trekking to almost 15,000’. Lava Tower will be the high point for tomorrow, and then we will begin our descent to Barranco Camp. Even though we are gaining almost 2,500’ in the morning, we will be back to almost the same altitude that we are right now. And this is exactly what our bodies need and is key for proper acclimatization. We are ready for the challenge!

Best regards,
RMI Guide Jeff Martin
