Day 2: Out of the jungle

Our second day on the mountain started early and we were en route at 0700.

After just an hour, we were out of the jungle and in a moorland zone, leading us via a rocky ridge to the Shira plateau, from which we could see the first beautiful views of the Western
Breach with its glaciers.

In all, we took about six hours to cover a distance of just nine km to reach Shira Camp, at 3840m altitude.
