Description

Hey there! Calling from the Karanga Camp at 13,231 feet. Just wrapping up our third day on the mountain. Today was really incredible transversing the mountain from Barranco Camp to Karanga following the Barranco wall which is kind of a class 3 to class 4 scramble. There are really beautiful rolling hills in the 3 mile walk to the Karanga. We got in around 12:30 and had a really nice lunch and then the clouds kind of came and went so we got short glimpses of the peak. There’s some really beautiful views of Mount Meru across the valley and we kind of climbed above most of the weather now. The sun went down. Really beautiful sunset and it dropped below freezing. Things are kind of frozen here but we’re warm in our tents. The plan is to get up tomorrow early around sunrise and to climb from Karanga up to Barafu, and Barafu means cold in Swahili. This next camp is at 15,300 feet and it’s going to be cold. We will wake up at about midnight tomorrow to make our summit attempt.
