Lyudmila Korobeshko, the super-guide of the 7 Summits Club, reports from Tanzania:

Jambo from snowy and rain-drenched Tanzania! The morning did not portend anything. We dried up after yesterday's snowfall and slowly went out to storm the Barranco wall. The assault was successful. After lunch we came to the Karanga camp. As soon as we got into the tents, it began to rain, which turned into a downpour, then into hail, then into some kind of violent frenzy. Powerful streams flooded our tents from above and from the slopes, threatening to wash away the entire camp. Miraculously, the tents did not float away. But all things and we got wet ourselves.

When we finally leaned out of the tents after two hours of a snow shower, we hardly recognized the terrain - in mud flows interspersed with snow ... We are thinking how to dry. And how to go up tomorrow without crampons ... the whole mountain is covered in snow.... But we're super-cats. We'll manage!
