Andy checked in this morning (his evening) and reported that the team had another great day on the trail! They dodged the rain by just a few minutes today. “It poured just after we got to camp” is how Andy put it. The clouds had already started to dissipate by the time they were heading to their tents for some shuteye.
Tomorrow they’ll leave Shira Camp (12,000ft.) and stay above the treeline making their way up to the Lava Tower (14,500ft) for lunch. They’ll surly be breathing hard at 14,500ft, but it’s incredible acclimatization. After lunch they’ll drop back down to Barranco Camp (13,000ft.). It’s a reasonably big day tomorrow, but this team is up for the challenge!
