Day 7: Karanga Camp to Barafu Camp

By Bethany Ansell

Sshh! Don't wake The Lucky 13. They have reached Barafu Camp at 4600m and from here they will begin their summit attempt to the roof of Africa just after midnight tonight.

Our charity climbers have had the afternoon to recoup and relax in preparation for their final ascent to the top of Kilimanjaro, the mountain "created in flames and crowned by ice."

They are attempting to sleep early this evening and will later be woken by their guide with tea and biscuits before setting off by moonlight.

This is it. Let's push them up that mountain with our positive thoughts...


  1. Good luck to you all for the final push, keep going!!

    1. They are so close now! Thanks for your comment, the climbers appreciate your support.
