Picture of the week 9


Our second stop on the mountain became Shira 1 Camp.
To the south east along the eroded edges of the Shira Cone you can see, in the center of the photograph, both Klute Peak on the left and Johnsell Point. We scaled Klute Peak on our acclimatization day and I equaled my personal altitude record of 12,300 ft. The record was broken every day of the trip after that. Not surprising when you consider, after Mt. Kilimanjaro (19,340 ft.), there is only one other place in the world where a trekker (without climbing skills) can hike to a higher altitude…Advenced Base Camp North, Mt Everest! (21,300 ft).
