Another great day on the trail today is what Phunuru said when he checked in this morning. They enjoyed some cloud cover which kept things reasonably cool today. Clouds typically build up throughout the day and then dissipate in the evening, hopefully giving the team some nice views of the mountain after dinner.
Tomorrow they’ll head up to the Lava Tower (14,500ft.) for lunch before dropping down to Barranco Camp (13,000ft.) for the night. They’ll be breathing hard as they get to the Lava Tower, but it’s phenomenal acclimatization for their bodies.
All is well at Shira Camp on Kilimanjaro!
