Day 5: The Wall

Today is the 5th morning of my 7 day ascent of Mt. Kili and on my trek to the summit, I faced a daunting 800 foot vertical climb of what is known as, the Great Barranco Wall. "Pole pole" (slowly, slowly) does it. Onwards and upwards I trekked finally reaching the top. I'm having to be very conservative about battery power for my blackberry and camera. I'm saving it for the summit day push. I will have more for you soon.
