Mt Stanley, Uganda

Just booked flights to Uganda, and looking to get up Mt. Stanley while I'm there. Wondering if anyone has any recent info on the tour operators, Rwenzori Mountaineering Services (RMS) and the central circuit vs. Rwenzori Trekking Services (RTS) on the Kilembe route? As a guide is required, I've gotta pick one. RMS has had some pretty bad reviews but none I'm seeing that are very recent, so maybe they've improved. RTS is quite a ...

Quality Kilimanjaro operators

Hi everyone,

I would like to climb Kilimanjaro next summer (there are two of us). We would like to spend a maximum of £2000 each and would like to spend a minimum of six days on the mountain.

I'm looking for suggestions on good guiding companies that fit these requirements and also possibly good routes to try?

Many thanks

Beta/Gear recommendations for Mount Kenya (Nelion std. route

I'm planning an attempt on Mt. Kenya by the Nelion Std route in February. Has anyone here been on the mountain in the last couple of years? I'm interested in any advice or beta (either here, or PM me). In particular, I'm curious as to what sort of snow conditions to expect, as only beta from recent years will likely be relevant. We plan to take crampons and axes with us, but I have no ...

Hiking Mt Meru, Tanzania

Hi guys,

We are planning on hiking Mt Meru in October 2014. We are hiking without a tour operator and possibly without porters. What cold/rain gear is needed for that time of year?

We have thermal baselayers (top and bottom), light weight trekking clothes (top and bottom), water and wind proof outershells (top and bottom), light weight fleece tops, thicker fleece tops, gloves, buffs, fleece beanies, gaiters and ponchos, as well as down sleeping bags ...

Zara Tours

Hey all, I know people are always asking about tour operators for Kili. I just finished the Machame 5 day with Zara and have nothing but good things to say about them. They are not top of the line but we ate fine and were very efficient on the mountain. I would go with them again in an instant. Just thought I would share. Scott

Traverse of M'Goun in winter Traverse of M'Goun in winter

Did anybody ever traverse the M'Goun mountain range (High Atlas, Morocco) in winter?
And what about snow levels early February?

I'm planning this as a solo trip for next month, from Azilal to Skoura. Wonder if it's ever been done solo in winter.

Toubkal SE ridge via Aiguille d'Ifni Toubkal SE ridge via Aiguille d'Ifni

Did anyone climb the SE ridge of Toubkal via the Aiguille d'Ifni?

I plan to climb this ridge next month and would like to get some more details. I've been in the area several times in winter and climbed all major peaks solo, so I know what to expect. Just need some inside information about this ridge, tips on approach etc.

Toubkal SE ridge

Thnx! Boris
