Barranco undoubtedly is the most beautiful camp of the route, with countless senecias and lobelias, the view to the top and a dramatic rocky step down to the valley.

     
 

In the morning it is tough going right from the start. The rocks beside Barranco camp are nicknamed Breakfast Wall.

Frequently we have to use our hands. The porters have more difficulties, carrying big loads like tables, chairs and long tent poles.

     
 

After one hour of ascend new views have opened up.

     
  It is a long and exhausting stage.

Therefore some guides make their way on to Karranga Camp the day before.
Tonight the climb to the top is planned.

     
 

Barafo Huts.

The camp at 4600m is our base camp for the final stage to the top. We will start at midnight.
