The Barranco Wall on Mt KILIMANJARO 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 #mtkilimanjaro #mountkilimanjaro #africa #tanzania #adventure #outdoor #nature #volcano #mountains #view #trek #hike #climb #summer #summit #snow #cold #clouds #kiss #breakfast #sky #bluesky #sports #trail #fitness
Taking it back a couple of years with this photo after getting to the top of Barranco Wall while climbing Kilimanjaro! 🏔⛰ Was such a relief when I got to the top as I'm scared of heights so being back on level ground felt amazing! 😄🙌 Check out my YouTube channel (link in bio) if you want to see me face my fears! 🌍😅 . . . #kilimanjaro #vlog #climbingkilimanjaro #barrancowall #barafucamp #mountains
Did you know? Only climbers on the Machame, Shira, Lemosho and Umbwe route climb the Barranco wall. If you are scared of height you can opt for Marangu, Rongai or Northern circuit routes which do not require the climbing of barranco wall. #barrancowall #height #polepole #hakunamatata #karibusana #shahtours #tanzania

Kilimanjaro 📍 Nikon D3300📷 @pbutter585 on the lens 👌🏻 Not one of my photos this is my buddy Phil’s skills. I think this is one of my favourite photos from our climb up Kilimanjaro June 2017. We hiked the Macheme route and this was taken at the barranco camp. . . . . #kilimanjaro #kili #kibo #africa #moshi #tanzania #hiking #hikingadventures #climbing #tent #photography #photographer #nikond3300 #nikon #igooutdoors #everydaylifeoutdoors #getoutside #i_climbed_kilimanjaro #wanderlust #outdoors #barrancocamp #barrancowall #barranco #gadventures #gadv #statravel #travel #nomad #wildernessculture #traveladventures

Day Four// we were pretty winded by the time we got to the top, which took about an hour. So we celebrated and took a bunch of jumping photos because everyone on social media had done the same thing. Funny thing? This ended up being the EASIEST PART OF THE DAY. 🤦🏼‍♀️ also the driest, because it started pouring down rain halfway through the rest of the 3 hour hike and didn’t stop until that evening. . . . . . . . . . #hiking #getoutside #mountains #barrancowall #barrancocamp #tanzania #mountkilimanjaro #kilimanjaro #machameroute #whiskeyroute #girlsrule #kuiunation
Day Four// NORTH (east) OF THE WALL (Barranco Wall, that is). This was an exciting part of the trek. We actually did some rock climbing and made it past the Hugging Wall in one piece, with the exception of my sunglasses. (The hugging Wall was a piece of rock that jutted out so you grabbed on with your left hand and planted your left foot so you were facing away from the Wall, then swung the right side of your body out and around and hoped you caught on to something on the other side). Look closely and you can see the trail with other hikers making their way up and over. . . . . . . . . #hiking #getoutside #mountains #rockclimbing #mountkilimanjaro #kilimanjaro #tanzania #machameroute #whiskeyroute #barrancowall #barrancocamp #dayfour

Scrambling up Barranco Wall. Being unacclimated, two of the “golden rules” to avoiding altitude sickness are going “Pole Pole (slowly)” during ascent and minimizing carry load to reduce exertion. Although the porters are acclimated to Kili and hike it for a living, we were astonished by their speed and strength on a daily bases nonetheless. Even when we would get a short head start while the porters stayed to tear down camp, they would quickly overtake us to have camp erected at the next location by the time we arrived. Some would carry the heavy loads without using their hands to balance the bags on their head. A huge shoutout to our crew, “the dream team,” from @africanscenicsafaris ! —— Day 4, Mt.

Climbing the Barranco Wall at 13k feet. People call it the Dreaded Wall but not sure why, as it’s more scramble with a touch of bouldering as compared to a 10 pitch sheer rock wall. Turn on your champion mindset, cinch your pack close to your body, activate your core, mind your foot & hand holds, take slow but deliberate steps and just don’t look down. Enjoy the fact you get to literally climb through clouds to a soundtrack of waterfalls.
Day 4- Barranco Wall (or Breakfast Wall, as referred to by some locals), rising up 200m, was the most demanding part of the trek. However, we were thrilled to scale it as it was the only major challenge that stood between us and the Uhuru peak. After scrambling up the wall on all fours for 2 hours, we reached the top and stopped to take some pictures (and to catch some breath :P). Then, we continued for 2 Hrs/5 Kms to reach Karanga camp for lunch, and another 4 Hrs/4 Kms before reaching the base camp. Even though it was a long and tiring day, anticipation of the upcoming summit attempt left us feeing excited!!! Elevation- 3900m to 4673m . . . #kilimanjaro #kilimanjaroclimb #mountkilimanjaro #barancocamp #barrancowall #karangacamp #barafucamp
The climb is tough, but the view from the top is worth it. Kilimanjaro Barranco Wall. _________________________________ . .

@mattchapman808 at Barranco Camp, two days before his #kilimanjaro summit attempt. #barrancowall
With last Monday being International Mountain Day and this week being exactly 9 months since I stood on top of my first ever international mountain, Mt. Kilimanjaro, I had to share one of my favorite pictures from this year. A fellow TNT teammate captured this incredible shot of our scramble up the Barranco Wall with the line of climbers, guides and porters snaking all the way down (zoom in). While the angle and composition of the photo is quite striking, that is not the reason it is my fav photo. Instead it is because it captures the exact moment that while in a moment of panic, I let go of my fears and doubts as to whether I would reach the summit successfully. That look on my face is the transition from sheer panic to determination. It is amazing to have photographic proof of such a moment!!! #tnt @climb2cure #myteamintraining @myteamintraining #overcomingmyfears #determination #didireallydothat
#Tbt to the day we climbed Barranco Wall on day 5 of our Kili climb! @alexmckeand “Wow that wall really is huge!” Me “What wall?” Alex “Are you kidding?! That huge wall!” Me “Oh THAT wall, I didn’t realise we were climbing THAT!” One of the hardest but most fun and rewarding days on the mountain! ⛰🇹🇿 @aldorin1 #kilimanjaro #lemoshoroute #takemeback #tanzania #barrancowall
(Part 3- Day 4) 11 November 2017. Once the clouds cleared at Karanga camp, we were able to see where we came from. The view was amazing and serene. We stood on that ledge for awhile in complete amazement. In retrospect, I wish I hadn't narrated with my annoying voice because you can hear one of the other groups in the camp singing the Kilimanjaro song... ❤ #throwbackwhenever #mountkilimanjaronationalpark #karangavalley #barrancowall #Mountkilimanjaro #kilimanjaro2017 #kilimanjaro #climbkili #climbing #hiking #hiker #camping #getoutside #adventuretravel #adventure #Africa #tanzania 🇹🇿 #wanderlust #worthit #seetheworld #travelphotography #travel #worldtraveler 🌎
(Part 2) In today's series, we revisit Day 4.  11 November 2017.  Woke up to clear skies and an awesome view of Mt Kili. Day 4's trek took us from the Barranco valley (13,000 ft) to Karanga (13,100) into the Kili arctic zone.  We climbed 257 meters up the Barranco wall which was a 40% grade.  It sounded and looked steep  but it wasn't.  Just don't look down! It felt as if God himself put every rock exactly where it needed to be to make it easy for me. Getting up to Karanga camp and looking back down felt pretty damn amazing.  Everyday the list at the gates kept getting shorter and Kili kept getting bigger. #throwbackwhenever #mountkilimanjaronationalpark #barrancowall #Mountkilimanjaro #climbing #kilimanjaro2017 #kilimanjaro #climbkili #hiking #hiker #camping #getoutside #adventuretravel #adventure #Africa #tanzania 🇹🇿 #wanderlust #worthit #seetheworld #travelphotography #travel #worldtraveler 🌎
(Part 1) In today's series, we revisit Day 4.  11 November 2017.  Woke up to clear skies and an awesome view of Mt Kili and the Barranco wall. Luckily I got enough of a signal to message my baby girl and wish her a happy 22nd birthday and tell her we were still alive.  I had a hard time picking up a signal ever since we started. (My husband had signal most days.) Day 4's trek took us from the Barranco valley (13,000 ft) to Karanga (13,100) into the Kili arctic zone. This was my favorite day. We climbed 843 ft up the Barranco wall at a 40% grade.  I felt as if God himself put every rock exactly where it needed to be to make it easy for me.  I was pretty thankful for geeking out on heavy squats during training because "scrambling" all the way to the top, I wasn't tired or out of breath like my husband and guides were. Getting up to Karanga camp and looking back down felt pretty damn amazing.  Everyday the list at the gates kept getting shorter and Kili kept getting bigger. #throwbackwhenever #mountkilimanjaronationalpark #barrancowall #Mountkilimanjaro #kilimanjaro2017 #kilimanjaro #climbkili #hiking #hiker #camping #getoutside #climbing #adventuretravel #adventure #Africa #tanzania 🇹🇿 #wanderlust #worthit #seetheworld #travelphotography #travel #worldtraveler 🌎

Day 5 #Kilimanjaro ... It was a beautiful morning and after coffee, pictures & goofing off we were off to climb steep Barranco Wall & continue on to our next higher camp. Today was my favorite day of hiking! Never ceased to be impressed with our amazing guys carrying heavy loads. Thoroughly enjoyed today's walks, talks, stops & beauty all around! #tanzania #hiking #favorite #day #lemoshsoroute #barrancowall #mountain #findyourpath #friendships #beauty #clouds #cliffs #kindness
This was from day #4 , my favorite day, climbing the 843 feet up the Barranco wall into the Arctic zone of Kilimanjaro. This part is called the kissing wall because that's how close you have to get to go through. As a medical professional, I don't recommend kissing anything in Africa. 🙊 #mountkilimanjaro #barrancowall #climbkili #worldtraveler 🌎 #adventuretravel #kilimanjaro2017 #rockclimbing #hiking #ospreypacks #keenboots #columbiawear #craghoppers #hikingadventures #africa #tanzania 🇹🇿
