IMG guide Sheldon Kerr and her team called in from Barranco camp where the team brings a good report. Their trek today involved about eight hours of walking to move from Shira Camp (12,000’) to over 14,500’ on their acclimatization hike after which they finished off the day by arriving at Barranco Camp (about 13,000’).
The method of climbing high and sleeping low is great for acclimatizing and the team did nice work keeping a slow, steady pace. The weather has been great and tomorrow the team will do a little scrambling up the Barranco Wall as they continue their trek.
Onward and upward!
