The guide of the 7 Summits Club Olga Rumyantseva reports from Tanzania:

The Lucky Chyk-chyryk band sends greetings from the Baranko camp from the slopes of Kilimanjaro! Today was a difficult, but very beautiful and eventful day. The morning greeted us with the sun, a beautiful sunrise and a view of the summit of Kilimanjaro.

On this day, we had to climb the Lava Tower, gaining 800 meters of altitude, and then descend to the Baranko camp, dropping almost everything we had gained. Today the weather decided to test our strength. On the way to the Lava Tower, we got into the snow with the wind, and on the descent - in the rain. But you can't scare us like that.



Together with our guides, we sang songs and shouted chants: "One team - one dream!" and so on, ending with the invariable "chyk-chyryk! Hakuna matata!" So if you hear this from the guides on Kilimanjaro now, don't be surprised.

Thanks to the extraordinary team spirit, friendly support and inexhaustible optimism, our super team overcame all difficulties and came to the Baranko camp.  Everyone feels normal, and I would like to hope that it will be even better by morning, because this will be our second night at an altitude of 3900.
