Just off the phone with Eben from our high camp at Barafu (15,100′) . All is well. It rained for 8 hours last night at Karanga, with thunderstorms, but is looking good today. Early to bed tonight and early to rise for their shot at the summit. The goal is to hit the crater rim as the sun crests the horizon. Hard to describe with words; something you have to experience yourself! They’ve put out a lot of energy getting to this point, but are in great shape and eager to keep pushing for the top. Everything is ticking along perfectly and we look forward to hearing of their summit success soon. Stay tuned!
