Kilimanjaro: Okita & Team at High Camp

Greetings from 15,200’. We were rewarded today with a short three hour hike to Barafu Camp, last stop before the summit.  This is it! Tonight we go for the top.
Everyone is excited, and perhaps a wee bit nervous. Climbing to 19,340’ is no small feat. But with all the preparation and great acclimatization we’ve taken advantage of we’re more than ready.
Our wonderful camp staff has been spoiling us rotten, greeting us with bowls of hot water once we got settled in camp and a lunch that couldn’t be better. It’s amazing what they do here, considering that it takes over two hours for a porter to get a five-gallon bucket of water from the nearest stream.
We’ve discussed the details of the climb tonight and have been preparing our gear so we’re all ready for tonight’s departure. We’ll try to get to bed around 6:00pm and awaken at 11:30pm. Breakfast at midnight and walking shortly thereafter.
Wish us luck!
