Just spoke with Eben Reckord from Karanga Camp at 13,500 ft. Relatively easy day, no rain and skies are clear as they prepare for bed. With a 7 day climbing itinerary, the move up to high camp tomorrow is fairly short. Simply means that the team will be at high camp early in the afternoon and not tired from a long hike. They’ll eat, hydrate and get to bed early. My guess is that they’ll be on the summit so early that they’ll have to wait for the sunrise on Kilimanjaro. Not bad – being on top and watching the sun come up over the Roof of Africa.
