Andy Polloczek checked in from Barranco Camp today (13,000ft.) reporting that all is wet and well. The team had another wet day on the trail today, but as Andy put it, this team is resilient! They kept a great attitude, enjoying each other’s company throughout the day. The rain started a little over an hour from the Lava Tower and continued on and off for the rest of the day. Once in camp they did their best to dry out, while sipping on some hot tea, before sitting down for a nice dinner. The good news is that there is some drier weather in the forecast!
Tomorrow the team will tackle the Barranco Wall, a 2 hour pseudo scramble. It looks intimidating from Barranco Camp, but it’s often one of the most enjoyable parts of the climb.
Despite the rain, all is well on Kilimanjaro!
