IMG guide Eben Reckord checked in by sat phone from the 15,000 foot Barafu Camp on Kilimanjaro. He says they had a bit of rain earlier in the day, but that it is clearing up now and everything is looking good for their summit climb tonight. After an early dinner, everyone is now tucked in for the night, getting some rest before the big day tomorrow. Their plan is to leave in the middle of the night, with the plan to reach the summit shortly after dawn tomorrow. We’ll keep you posted!
