IMG guide Eben Reckord reports that the team had a nice night at Karanga, including a spectacular sunset. Check out Mt Meru to the west (near Arusha) in the photo that Eben sent.
Today the team hiked from Karanga (at 13,000 ft) to Barafu (at 15,000 ft) and reached the camp in time for a nice rest this afternoon, a big early dinner and then an early bedtime. They are planning to start for the summit about midnight. If all goes well, they should be hitting Uhuru Peak shortly after sunrise. We’ll be looking forward to hearing from them!
