Summit for Literacy Update Day 4

A Few Days Away from the Summit!

On Day 4 of their journey, our Kili Conquerers started climbing toward Lava Tower lower camp, at 14,950 feet, where they stopped for lunch, allowing their bodies to acclimatize. They then descended down through the Giant Senecio forest to Barranco Camp, which is beautifully set up on a ridge at the foot of the Barranco Wall. Hopefully they get a good night’s sleep, as they will be climbing the challenging wall tomorrow!

The team needs your words of encouragements now more than ever. Remember to post your messages to them on our Kili page. You could win a Kili t-shirt and a CODE toque — the same ones our climbers are wearing throughout their journey!

Thanks to their supporters, the climbers have now raised over $202,000 in support of CODE’s literacy programs in Africa...and counting!

Barranco Camp, the destination for Day 4
