Craig John checked in this morning after the long day from Shira to Baranco Camp. The weather remains cold and windy and they managed to get into camp before some afternoon rain. Nice timing! They took the high traverse around Lava Tower to take advantage of the opportunity for acclimatization. The elevation of Baranco Camp is not much higher than Shira, so the group usually gets a great nights sleep in this camp. It’s also one of the prettiest camps on the mountain. Time for some popcorn and roasted peanuts from the camp cooks!
