Today’s journey was quite interesting because we started at Shira Camp, climbed up to the Lava Tower, then descended back down to into Barranco Camp.
After breakfast we began our ascent up to the Lava Tower which was about 3000 ft (914m) of elevation gain before we descended back down to 13,000 ft (3962m). This is a was a good way to test how climber would get acclimatized to the high elevation of Kilimanjaro and see how out bodies would respond.
This morning started off quite well since I was able to actually get some good sleep the night before. I guess I was more exhausted from the previous days trek than I thought.
