Phunuru checked in this morning with some good news… despite the less than ideal weather yesterday, the team enjoyed great views and much better weather today on their trek up to 12,000ft at Shira Camp. Once in camp, they settled into their tents, had some tea, and explored a bit.
Tomorrow they’ve got a bit of a bigger day. They’ll climb up to the Lava Tower (14,500ft.) for lunch, then drop down to Barranco Camp which sits at about 13,000ft. They’ll be huffing and puffing a bit as they near the Lava Tower, but it’s a great acclimatization day for the team.
All is well at 12,000ft on Kilimanjaro!
