July 20, 2016 - Full Moon Ascent

Posted by Linley Daly on 7/20/2016 at 8:08 AM

Baranco Camp to Barafu Camp (4600m) - 5 hours walk

Climbers begin a steadily uphill trek. The temperature will grow colder and the landscape more sparse as they work their way to Barafu Camp. Barafu means, "ice" in Kiswahili. The base camp at Barafu hut is set on an exposed ridge and is the staging point for the push to the summit. After an early dinner climbers will rest. At midnight, under the stars and a brightly shining moon, climbers will begin the final ascent!
