Day 5 - July 7th, 2018

Karanga

13,200-ft/4,023-m

3.6 miles/5.8 km

4-5 hours

It was a beautiful morning! We got our start bright and early with the sun shining on our campsite and Mount Kilimanjaro in full view.

We spent the late morning scaling the magnificent Barranco Wall which proved to be a very technically difficult segment of our climb.

We climbed for much of the afternoon without a lunch break through the dusty valleys and river beds leading up to the Karanga Campsite. This afternoon we all enjoyed our first and last showers on the mountain and will sleep well, clean and as usual well fed!
