Date Climbed: Jan 15, 1995


My first continent highpoint. Left Kibo hut at 1am during a snow storm and arrived at the summit before sunrise. I sat around freezing for well over an hour waiting for the sun to come up so I could take some pictures.

YemeniIllini05Marangu -- April 2005  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Apr 15, 2005
Climbed the Marangu route with a local Tanzanian company, Zara Tours. Got altitude sickness at the first hut (Mandara hut) at about 8,000 feet. Was fine the next morning and got to the Horombo Hut at about 13,000 feet without any problems. 3rd day was acclimatization. The 4th took us to the Kibo hut at about 15,000 feet. At about midnight, we pushed for the summit -- severe altitude sickness turned me back at Gilman's Point on the summit crater. Overall, great weather and a moderately easy climb for a fit individual who is well acclimatized.

Only 2 out of 5 made it. At the age of 72, I had no problems with altitude. I took Naprosyn and 2 Coca Tea bags daily that I got from Peru.

Fantastic time with R3. Summit morning was snowy with high winds. 1 to 3 cm of snow accumulation. Arrived atop for clearing clouds and sunrise.

Date Climbed: Oct 22, 2008


Climbed Kili via the Shira route in 8 days (up & down), with guides from the African Walking Co. (whom i recommend). On the summit we couldn't see a thing because of the fog, but the achievement of getting to the top felt great!

mnaturesonMachame - 7 days  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 13, 2009


Group of four from San Diego. The summit of Kili was clear every night of our climb. Then the mountain decided to dump an inch or two of snow on us the night before the summit. Although I missed having a view from the top, I loved the sporty feel of a summit in the snow. I felt like I was in the Himalaya, not Africa. I also loved not having to fight the scree slope on the last 30 min to Stella Point, having a nice blanket of snow holding the slope together.

Peak FreakUmbwe Route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Mar 13, 2009

Peak Freak

First three days featured some of the most beautiful and enjoyable hiking I have ever done! Day four was another easy hike. Summit day was a real slog in the snow, but we made it to the top around sun rise. Felt pretty good on the way down, so we hiked all the way out and finished early. If I did it again, I'd take six days up to be better acclimatized for summit day, and still hike all the way out the same day. As it stood, we did the whole thing in five.

Beautiful ascent up a now-closed route, my first big mountain. The trip was organized by Mountain Madness. I highly recommend them!!!

eje138Marangu route  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Feb 7, 2005


A wonderful trekking even on the normal "Coca Cola" route. The flora changes every day with the altitude, but there's always something to stop to take a photo of. We had gorgeous weather the whole week.
Easy climb to the Kibo hut, but not to be underestimated from there to Gilman's Point, due to the combination of altitude and cold. (I thought I would freeze to death.) From there it's easy again, because it's flat and the sun comes up. I will always remember that sunrise.
(A túrát a Baraka szervezte és Nádai Laci vezette nagyszerûen.)

Planned our climb for a year. What an incredible experience. All six of us made it . We took the Macheme route and used Good Earth. The whole company was awesome but extra shout out to Amani, Tumane and Bryson. A beautiful full moon and clear sky for our summit. Yes , it was difficult but pole, pole all the way. No Problem. We'll never forget this !

Date Climbed: Feb 13, 2009


All 7 of our group made the summit. We did the Machame Route over 7 days with Kessy Tours. I highly recommend adding the 7th day since it splits the long day before the summit into 2 easy days. We had a clear sky with 5 to 10 K winds on the summit. Temp just around freezing.

Quite easy climb, we had no problems due to the altitude.
Fantastic sunrise at 6:00 in the morning on Stella Point (we left Barafu Camp at 1:00), before we went on to Uhuru Peak. Really breathtaking views on the top !

Charles GarrettSecond climb  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Sep 25, 2008
Another climb for Downside Up, raising money for Russian children with Down's syndrome. And another fantastic trip on the Marangu route. Very little change from 1997 when I first came - accommodation and route much as they were; saw many of the guides we orginally had too. No snow this time though on the crater rim - in 97 there was about a foot of it all round the rim and within the crater itself.
