Rise at midnight, exit at one, we will try.  One of the knights, unfortunately, dropped out. The rest of the members of the group "Mashuta Tisa” (Nine Knights) of the 7 Summits Club and two guides reached Uhuru peak 5895 m quite cheerfully in 6 hours!

At 10:00 we went back to the Kosovo assault camp, rested and ate. And again, the dry season plays its role - snow and rain up to 3800 meters above sea level of the Millennium Camp. But, despite this, all the participants of the ascent were satisfied! Tomorrow departure to the hotel and awarding party.

Jambo Rafiki!  In the morning, the Mashujaa Tisa (Nine Knights) group of the 7 Summits Club overcame the Baranko wall - the main technical obstacle of the entire route! The fog has returned again... the boundless lava fields of Kilimanjaro fascinate with fabulous views! By lunchtime we got to the Camp Karanga 4030m and here we turned on the rain with cereals.

Jumbo Rafiki! The first minus degree at night, but a clear morning and bright Sun! Again, cool views of the Kilimanjaro massif and Mount Meru 4562m. The group "Mashujaa Tisa (Nine Knights)" of the 7 Summits Club continues its Machame Route. In 3 hours we gained 900m and went to the Lava Tower 4640m, there is lunch.

And yet, they gave fog, drizzle and grits... Well, and to those who did not believe in pole pole, the mountain sickness knocked, not much, but made it clear what height and speed are! The descent from the Lava Tower, into the valley of the Senecio grass palms and Camp Baranco 3900m, was slower.  We are waiting for dinner now! Everyone is tired, but happy. Guides Sergey Avtomonov and Evgeny Fedyunin.

Midnight rise, "hard night eating", everyone is grumbling a little ... The group " Akukaracha" of the 7 Summits Club begins night preparation ... the exit was scheduled for 00-00! We reached Stella Point (5756 m) right cheerfully, at 5-30 we were on the crater! A little tea and then pole pole…

At 7-00, the whole group and guides Sergey Avtomonov and Evgeny Fedyunin were at the top of Uhuru Peak 5895 m. Unlike the New Year's fuss, it was possible to take a picture and send greetings home! Only one participant set herself a high-altitude threshold of 4700, you can't argue with her health! By 9-30 we went down to the Kosovo assault camp, had a short nap, lunch, and today we need to drop another kilometer of altitude. We go further, to the Milenium camp 3800 m.

Jambo Rafiki! Today, the Akukaracha group of the 7 Summits Club, without traffic jams, overcame the Baranko wall in 1.5 hours - much more pleasant than in the New Year's collapse! The only negative is the constant fog, and as a result, the lack of cool views and photos. On the way, we saw the consequences of the great October fire, the result of careless handling of fireworks - a very sad sight! We got to the camp Karanga 4030m by lunch.

After a very hearty lunch, fruit, guacamole... we hardly went for an acclimatization walk higher from the bivouac. And the food here is great! The whole group is happy!

Jambo Rafiki! The morning in Moorland, as always, is damp and humid. But it is worth leaving the tent, and beautiful views of the Kilimanjaro massif and Mount Meru 4562m are provided! The Akukaracha group of the 7 Summits Club continues its Machame Route today. Today is one of the most difficult days, the climb and drop of 900m altitude. According to the plan, first there is an acclimatization ascent to the Lava Tower 4640m, there is lunch.  Moorland is replaced by an Arctic desert, a kingdom of rocks, mosses and lichens.  The dry season, after all, is in no hurry ... drizzle, fog and dampness continue to bother at the crossings! The Lava Tower is hiding in the fog again. From Lava Tower, passing the valley of Senecio grass palms, we went down to Camp Baranco 3900m, we spend the night here, fog... For some participants, today's  trek has become a personal challenge and a real revelation, the discovery of their capabilities! The Baranko wall, as always, is impressive! Guides Sergey Avtomonov and Evgeny Fedyunin.
