We just heard from Craig John and the team at Shira Camp on Kilimanjaro. The group is doing well, and enjoying a good spell of clear weather. Craig reports that like the climb he just completed, it is very cold. Much colder than usual. If you are on the next climb make sure to bring a good down parka with a hood! The team feels strong and everyone is excited for tomorrow when they will ascend up and around Lava Tower on the way to Baranco Camp. They’ll touch 15,000′ and see how their legs and lungs like it! Looking good.
