Shira Camp to Barranco Camp. Climb high, sleep low is the order of the day. We will gain almost 1,000m (3,000ft) to Lava Tower at 4,693m (15,380ft). Lava tower is a little jut of cooled magma just off the trail, an optional climb and the most technical part of our trip. After reaching the peak of Lava Tower, it was a 900m descent to Barranco Camp for the night. It felt counter productive, but I'm sure we all slept better in the thicker air and was part of our being able to tackle the heights awaiting the next day.
