Subject: Kili climbers tackle Barranco wall
The group had a great day today. We tackled the Barranco wall first thing after breakfast, and everyone put in a great effort. The most heard comment at the top was “Is that it? We want to do more!” Always good to hear that people are having fun. Then we took a well deserved break and loads of photos at the high point under the southern glaciers with clear weather. We arrived Karanga early afternoon to a big lunch – fried chicken, French fries and watermelon. The Chagga cooks are putting on a great show with the meals. This afternoon everyone is relaxing in the sun. Tomorrow we turn our minds toward the summit as we head to high camp. Everyone is excited and doing well. We”ll check in from Barafu tomorrow.
