The group of the 7 Summits Club "Lyampaka" climbed to the Barranco camp
Lyudmila Korobeshko, the super-guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Tanzania:
February 25. Jambo from Tanzania from the Lyampaka group! Today we moved from Camp Shira Cave 3800 to Camp Barranco 3900 via the dizzying Lava Tower at 4600. From such a height, the heads were slightly dizzy. Having had a delicious dinner under the Lava Tower, we began to descend, and then we were caught by the strongest bad weather - a thunderstorm with a powerful snowfall. It was the first time I saw blue flowers under the snow. Barranco's camp was also covered in snow. Even our local guides said that they see this for the first time in this camp.
However, around 5 pm the sun came out, and we even managed to dry off a little and warm up for half an hour. The most powerful waterfalls poured down from the Barranco wall. Tomorrow we have to overcome this wall. We want to warm up and sleep well today. And tomorrow we will climb the wall.
Warm greetings to all from the snow-covered slopes of Kilimanjaro!
