Sheldon and team are happily ensconced at the Karanga Camp, altitude approx. 13,500’ Using this camp adds an extra day to the climb but that’s a good thing, all the way around. More time for acclimatization, shorter day going into this camp and also a shorter day to high camp. Also, they’ll get to high camp tomorrow quite early. Plenty of time to prep, eat, drink and rest prior to a VERY early start for the summit. Fried chicken and French fries was the reported dinner menu with clear skies all around.
Our members who went down from Baranco Camp are down, were picked up by Keys Hotel drivers and are relaxing at the hotel, waiting for their friends to return after the climb.
