These two cuties all cozied up at Barranco Camp, Kili., TZ. About half way up that big hill they got over there. There was considerable sweating and walking on this quest -- and I'd do it all over again. 🇹🇿 • #tanzaniest #iblesstherains #kilimanjaro #cityintheclouds #kili #kilimate #theyhateuscausetheyaintus #BarrancoWall #barranco #toto #herdsonthemove #moshi #moshistation #buzzfromthebees #motherafrica #tanzania #powerofone #igdaily #instaspam #igcanada #bakubwa #meru
This is 'great Barranco Wall' 😍 found on Mt KILIMANJARO . It forms part of your early morning exercise on day 4 for climbers on the Machame, Shira, Umbwe and Lemosho Route. The Barranco Wall looks a lot more ominous than it actually is. You need no technical climbing skills to be able to scale the Barranco wall. Most trekkers on Kilimanjaro, excluding those on the Maragu Route, Northern Circuit and Rongai Route, need to contend with the Barranco Wall. The climb is often called the Barranco Breakfast Wall as it is the first thing that you need to do on day four of your trek. The Barranco Wall elevation is 257 meters – it seems higher but it is not! The trick is to go slowly and make sure of each footing you take. Be deliberate and use all four limbs to scramble up the wall. It is best not to use your trekking poles for this part of your hike as they can often get in your way as you maneuver your way up the Barranco Wall. The climb up the Barranco wall takes between 1-2 hours – depending on your fitness level. At the top of the Barranco Wall the trail continues to Karanga Camp which sits in the Karanga Valley. Here you will finally get a chance to rest and enjoy some lunch. Some people sleep at Karanga Camp and only carry on to the next camp, Barafu, on day five. If you stop for the night at Karanga you are on a seven day route. If you are on a six day route, you will still have a three hour climb ahead of you to base camp Barafu. It is therefore important not to expend all your energy on scaling the Barranco Wall and remain cognizant that you still have a lot more trekking ahead of you. Trekkers on the six day route typically get to Barafu around mid afternoon. You will be served something to eat and then it is important to get some shut-eye as you will be woken at ~12pm to start your ascent for the summit. “After climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb.” - Nelson Mandela #barrancowall #wall #barranco #rocks #kilimanjaro #rocks #mountkilimanjaro #africa #tanzania #adventure #outdoor #nature #volcano #mountains #view #trek #hike #climb #summer #summit #snow #cold #clouds #kiss #sky #bluesky #sports #trail #fitness
Happy birthday to our fearless Mount Kilimanjaro guide, Jaxon! We couldn't have made it to the Kili summit without you... Not legally, anyway.
This was The Barranco Wall, this was one of my favourite bits of the hike up Kilimanjaro. We started early and there was ice on the rocks, it was a bit nerve racking at first because your feet couldn’t get a grip. One of the porters actually fell backwards off the wall onto his back. They had to rush him of the mountain. Thankfully, news was he was ok. Seeing the fall had made me nervous, but once I got stuck in, I really enjoyed it. By the time I got to the top of the wall I was buzzing. #barrancowall #kilimanjaro #tanzania #africa #hiking #mountains #challengeyourself #kissingrock #volcano #rocks #justdoit
The Barranco Kissing Rock is a narrow section of trail that you encounter while traversing the Barranco Wall. On this tight section, extra care and attention are necessary as one hugs the wall to pass. It is an intimate spot to navigate with an intimidating drop-off. To honor the affectionate name of this passage, many climbers opt to kiss the wall to add a little spice and fun to the adventurous undertaking. : : : #kilimanjaro #barrancowall #kilimanjaroclimb #abenteuer #adventure #hiking #rock #wall #hikingadventures #adventuring #mountain #bucketlist #berg #outdoor #holiday #urlaub #mountainclimbing #climbing #climb #hike #trek #trekkingadventure #mountaineering #mountainlove #mountainadventures #newadventures #exploretheworld #wandern #wanderlust #hikingkilimanjarotours

Nach einer anstrengenden #Etappe über die #BarrancoWall haben wir endlich das #KarangaCamp auf 4.200 Meter Höhe erreicht. Jetzt genießen wir noch den einzigartigen #Sonnenuntergang 🌅 im #Camp und gehen dann zeitig schlafen, damit wir fit für die letzte Etappe vor der #Gipfelnacht sind. Besonders Nancy war nach der Ankunft im Camp sehr emotional. Aber auch die anderen werden langsam nervös, schließlich wollen es alle aus dem #Team auf den #Gipfel schaffen. In der #Slideshow lassen wir euch an der wunderschönen #Aussicht teilhaben und verabschieden uns hiermit in eine weitere kalte afrikanische Nacht😴⛺ auf dem #Kilimandscharo ! _____ #sunset #MachameRoute #Kilimanjaro #Tansania #Tanzania #Afrika #Africa #climbing #hiking #lifechanging #motivation #bergsteigen #funk
Auf der nächsten #Etappe müssen wir die 257 Meter hohe #BarrancoWall überwinden, um unsere Etappe zum 4.200 Meter hoch gelegenen #KarangaCamp fortzusetzen. Auf dem Weg dorthin kommen wir am berühmten #KissingRock 💋⛰ vorbei. Diese Stelle auf der Barranco Wall ist so eng, dass man sich mit dem Oberkörper an der #Felswand vorbeischieben muss. Es ist zur #Tradition geworden, dem #Stein beim Vorbeigehen einen dicken Schmatzer zu geben! Eine tolles #Ritual wie wir finden. Und auch landschaftlich hat die Etappe wieder einiges zu bieten! Morgen um 16 Uhr geht es weiter mit Folge 7 auf unserem #Youtube Kanal #ProjektHorizont !😊 _____ #Kilimandscharo #Kilimanjaro #Tanzania #Africa #MachameRoute #fun #Fels #drone #Tansania #Afrika #hiking #climbing #Bergsteigen #klettern #strong #funk
Day 5 on the Mountain (part 1): Last-nights sleep was amazing. I had to get up at one point and the sky was so clear, thousands upon thousands of stars. Little to no headache today. I think the diamox is helping for sure. Today we are hiking Barranco Wall. It is the steepest one of the most dangerous parts of the trek. Looking at it from straight ahead it looks right downright vertical. But as we got closer we could see that it was more walking and rock scrambling than actual climbing. We should be half-way up the wall an hour in and have two 15-minute scrambles: one on the beginning and one in the end. The scrambles should help make the time go by faster. We are told to “lean in”, reminds me of prepping our hikers for Old Rag. #womenwhohike #outdoorwomen #adventurewomen #alpingirls #barrancowall #getit #trekafrica #kilimanjaro #day5 #mountainvlog #meeganadoesafrica

🗻Kili journal - Day 5 1/2 🗻 Karanga Camp (4000m) to Barafu Camp (4673m) 💪 We wake up at Karanga Camp, last real sleep before the summit attempt. 😱 In order to get our spirits up, all our guides and porters get into a circle and sing the Kilimanjaro song for us (vid 2), and drum master Shovell (vid 3) says a few powerful words so we’re all full of love, humility and strength. 🗻 Such an emotional moment, we were all pretty close at this point and everything we had done so far had led up to this summit attempt. . I remember thinking that I wanted so hard for all of us to make it to the top, and hoping that nobody would have any bad reactions to altitude. Very powerful morning! 🗻 Then, we packed our stuff and started a 4-hour hike to Barafu Camp, Base Camp. (Vid 4) . It’s from such a camp, also called a ‘high camp’, that climbers attempt getting up the face of a mountain. Kilimanjaro being a volcano, the face is very steep, but it’s still manageable to walk and zigzag your way to the top, as opposed to most other mountains, where the need for mountaineering equipment such as clamps, rope and spikes are needed. 🗻 The hike to Barafu is pleasant, in this moonlike desert ❤ . We know that, at this point, if we haven’t had any serious effects from altitude, we’re in the best conditions to attempt the summit. 🙋🏻‍♀️🔝🗻

The Barranco Wall. The scariest but most fun part of my Kilimanjaro trek. If you zoom in, you’ll see climbers scaling this 300 metre wall. I discovered that a porter fell from this wall two years ago-thankfully he survived but others have not been so lucky-they are the true heroes of the mountain #barrancowall #kilimanjaro #africa #globaladventurechallenges
🗻Kili journal - Day 4 of the climb🗻 (3900m, up and down alpine desert terrain, sleep at 4000m) . I slept well on Day 3, Finally! I had brought chamomile tea to get to sleep easier and boy, what a great idea! Actual life saver. I think I conquered a phobia of mine as well as a mountain! I was still a tiny bit panicky when falling asleep, but I was exhausted, so I just gave in, stopped resisting and it worked! . We woke up to a beautifully sunny day, ready to take on the Great Barranco Wall. I had seen people going up a super steep mountain cliff, so I was anxious to see the real thing... It turned out to be my favourite part! No mountain poles, just your hands as you’re scrambling up for about an hour, I loved it!! And the views just kept getting more and more spectacular. . I was feeling very strong physically and mentally, on Day 4. Forced myself to drink at least 1 litre of water *before* setting out, because when you’re thirsty, you sort of have to stop walking and lose your pace, because you’re so out of breath when you drink. . Body and brain were definitely refreshed from the good sleep, the exercise and high-protein intake from the past three days. After the Barranco wall, the hike to Karanga Camp was about 4 hours, going down low and high up again, to sleep at roughly the same altitude again. . This was to be our last full night’s sleep before the summit attempt. I was glad that I was feeling confident on that fourth day, because I knew I would need every little bit of strength. . The real thing was coming. 😱😀

🗻Kili journal - Day 3 of the climb🗻 Acclimatisation day 3840m to Lava Tower (4600m), then down to Barranco Camp (3900m) . That day, I could really feel the lack of sleep. Or the altitude. Or both. It was definitely the second hardest day for me (after summit day, obvs). I woke up super grumpy… but then I opened my tent and I saw that view (pic 1) as the sun rose from behind me, over the top of Mt Kilimanjaro. . I told the other team members about my fear of suffocating and they made me feel better about it by saying that we were going to sleep at roughly the same altitude, that evening, so my body would have acclimatised. A shorter hike today, 4 hours up to the famous Lava Tower to acclimatise, where we will be served a hot lunch, and then 2 hours back down to Barranco Hut. . The last bit up to the Lava Tower was quite challenging for me, I felt very drowsy from the altitude, the breathing was getting much, much harder and my heart would just beat so fast… I made sure I was going extra ‘pole pole’, stopping often to catch my breath. . When we all got to camp that evening, we were greeted by the rest of the team and crew by long and warm hugs. No high fives. The laughs and happy banter gave way to a couple of sighs of relief. . One of our team members was ill with quite strong altitude sickness symptoms and it became very clear to all of us that the mountain wouldn’t hesitate in telling us who’s boss. . Nearly 1000m elevation in 4 hours for the first time in my life, the lack of sleep and the grey, misty skies made 6 hours feel like 10, but the dramatic scenery made it all worth it, and the need to leave proper time for acclimatisation became obvious.

With our two guides just after the barranco wall 🤩 #barrancowall #machameroute #mtkilimanjaro #thecrew #moutainslover #lovehim
Some of the guides seemed as chuffed to get to the top of Barranco Wall as we were! The view across to Mount Meru was clear above the cloud line and we rested a while to soak it in with the sunshine. The scramble brought some welcome challenge and varied movement after a few days of slow pace walking to acclimatise to the altitude. The porters still skipped effortlessly up the wall though with tents, duffel bags, pots and pans. #mountmeru #mountkilimanjarotrek #mountkilimanjaro #adventures #abovetheclouds #barrancowall #pushyourlimits #machameroute

Day 4: Barranco Camp ( 3900m) to Karanga Valley Camp (3960m) Distance : 7km- 5miles Trekking Time :7hours approx. Today we tackled climbing Barranco Wall. I had heard stories that the Barranco Wall was going : “ to require significant climbing experience “ “ almost impossible “ “ perilously dangerous” However , I or our team did not find that being the case. The climb was steep and strenuous and the air was very thin. The wall was fully exposed and I used my hands on many occasions to scramble and walk my way to the top. Views up and down the wall were amazing and all the climbers were all following one behind each other in a single line moving in their individual pace, occasionally stopping and admiring breathtaking views and taking amazing photos along the way. It took us almost nearly 3hours to reach the final ridge before Kibo was in view. From here onwards it was a much gentler slope downwards over the volcanic scree and through small sheltered valley before reaching Karanga Valley Camp. This valley is a green Oasis , very cold and windy ....However, this camp is strategic as it is significant for altitude and essential for acclimatisation.. Despite all the conditions I was feeling ok , just remained disciplined in my ability to continue, Realised that Success would not be final , Failure would not be fatal but the courage to continue was what mattered. So maintaining Calmness, remain Strong and focused kept my fuel reserved for TOMORROW 😊😊👏#ashantetours #machameroute #hakunamatata #mountkilimanjaro #lovetrekking #mountains #valley #altitudesickness #water #lossofappetite #polepole #scrambling #teamworkmakesthedreamwork #family #love #socloseyetsofar #porters #barrancowall

“Focus on what your body can do, not what it looks like.” OK, people. Real talk. My belly is super flabby in this pic. Go ahead. Zoom in. See it? Bloop, there it is. . Wanna know something? I don’t like it. Not a bit. I want a tight belly. I want to not just BE fit but LOOK fit. I don’t want to just CLIMB mountains I want to LOOK LIKE I climb mountains. And sometimes, if I’m honest, I focus more on what my body looks like than what it can do. To the point that I may have even posted a slightly retouched version of this picture before. One where I digitally pulled my pants up and tucked my tummy into a virtual pair of spanks. Isn’t that silly? In this picture, I was in the middle of climbing the highest free-standing mountain in the world. A mountain I’ve climbed multiple times. A feat few will ever attempt and even fewer will do more than once. Right before this pic was taken, I scaled an 800+ foot wall. Not only that, I shimmied up it with a smile, had encouraged others who struggled, and cheered on those in the midst of climbing. I hippity-hopped over rocks, across gaps and up the side of this beast until I reached the top. I love that wall and this day on the mountain. Enough to jump for joy even with the high altitude and not much O2. How utterly ridiculous that I would look at this pic now and care that my tumtum decided to photobomb me. How totally and completely not what I’m about. How very counter-productive. So I’m posting this. Because it matters. And it’s fun. And I’m proud of myself and Awesôme Climbs and everything we do for and with people and how we encourage those people to find their awesome - not find their six pack. Focus on what matters. We can help you. We aren’t experts at maintaining that focus yet, but we’re getting better.
