IMG guide Eben Reckord reports that the team had another spectacular day today, hiking from Shira Plateau to over 14,500 feet near Lava Tower, before dropping back down to the Barranco Camp. Barranco camp is situated in a valley below the famous Breach Wall, with the glaciers hanging down. Everyone is acclimatizing well and feeling good. The acclimatization profile of our 7 day Kili climb via the Machame Route is perfect in this regard, with ample time to get well acclimatized before the summit day.
