Kilimanjaro: Martin & Team Enjoy Amazing Views to Barranco Camp

Hello from Barranco Camp,

Today was another perfect day for us. We got out of camp early and made great progress to Lava Tower. We were there by lunch time and everyone felt great, despite being at almost 15,000’. While we had a cloudless sky in the morning, the clouds had started to roll in and we decided to begin our descent to Barranco Camp. The highlight of the descent was seeing all the giant groundsels as we approached camp. It is hard to describe their unique appearance, but suffice to say that you could just as easily have been on another planet.

We were in camp by 2:00 and after settling into our new accommodations, we headed to the dining tent for tea and snacks. Now we are just hanging out and enjoying the impressive views around camp and taking advantage of some idle time to write in journals, do some reading, send some texts, or just relax.

The team has been climbing strong everyday and everybody remains healthy. We’ll send the next dispatch from Karanga Camp tomorrow.

Best regards,
RMI Guide Jeff Martin
