George called from about 12,600’ on Kilimanjaro at Shira camp. The team did very well moving up to camp keeping a nice steady pace. The weather has been cooperating for the most part, though, they’ve experienced a bit of rain in the afternoon the last two days. In spite of the damp weather, the team is doing great and staying dry. They look forward to some better weather in the forecast and to a good day tomorrow as they head to Barranco Camp. Along the way they’ll enjoy getting a glimpse of Lava Tower and will push up to about 15,100’ before rolling into Barranco at about 13,000’. A great acclimatization day! Stay tuned for more.
