The good news, and the good timing, continues. John Colver called in this morning, (Pacific time, evening on Kili), to report that the crew woke to a beautiful sunrise and a fun couple of hours up the Baranco Wall. And, managed to get to Karanga Camp at 13,300 ft. about 10 minutes before an afternoon rain shower. But the rain didn’t last long. Clouds lowered and the mountain appeared for a glorious sunset. All members still doing well. Tomorrow’s a short day, about 3 hours, to high camp at Barafu. One of the advantages to doing this route in 7 days is that the day up to high camp is relatively short and easy and get the group there early in the day. Plenty of time to pack, rest and prepare for summit morning.
So, all continues to go well with the Colver crew.
