Woke up at 6 am to a satellite phone call from Andy Politz and the IMG team on Kilimanjaro. Hiked today from Machame Camp at 10000’ to Shira Camp at 12500’. All good, everyone did great and the weather’s been super. About all you can ask for, I guess.
Shira Camp is a cool place. First totally unobstructed views of Kilimanjaro.
A bit longer day tomorrow with a good chunk of up and then down. Great for acclimatization.
