When we hear from the Kilimanjaro teams, they’re about 12 hours ahead so they’ve already put in a day’s worth of work and our day is just getting started. Baranco Camp was the last call in and all’s well. Karanga is next on the schedule. It’s nice to break up the long day which would be required if you tried to skip Karanga and head straight from Baranco to high camp at Barafu. A stop at Karanga makes the day to high camp short and the arrival time early. Both help when it comes to the summit day.
