Day 5

Another short day before the final push to the summit

Today will be another short day giving the team chance to relax a little bit and prepare themselves for the push to the Summit tomorrow morning!

They will leave the Karanga campsite behind to meet the junction connecting with the Mweka descant trail. From here they will continue up to the Barafu Hut. This will mean they will have completed the Southern Circuit, which offers views of the summit from many different angles. Once at camp they will rest, enjoy some dinner and take in the two peaks of Mawenzi and Kibo which can be seen clearly from Barafu Hut.

One more day before they reach their goal, thank you for all your support, please keep sharing the Just Giving page, lets give them a boost to reach the summit with both targets for our charities reached.
