Ang Jangbu Sherpa called to report that the team had a good day moving up to Shira Plateau camp, at about 12,500. Now they are above the forest line, moving into the “zone of weird plants” that grow at high altitudes near the Equator (Kili is about 3 degrees south latitude). Sounds like the team had a little rain during the day but it cleared up in the afternoon and was quite nice. Everyone is climbing well and acclimatizing normally, so far so good!
