Morning at Shira Camp 1. A rare sight of the summit of Kilimanjaro. Uhuru Peak, the highest on the summit, is the bump up on the summit right. This is a view of the western flank. Our goal is to reach the summit by circling the mountain 180 degrees (to the left/north) and climbing up on the “out of sight” eastern flank. Still days away, another 8,000 feet up and 10s of miles of hiking to go. Who came up with this plan? Far out. Too far out.
