Mount Kenya sometime between 6/24/10 - 7/6/10

I'm going to be in Kenya during this time frame and I'm thinking about climbing Batian, the main summit of Mt. Kenya sometime during this time frame. My normal adventure buddy isn't able to go on this trip. Does anyone want to join me? I was thinking about doing it though this company:

Toubkal in winter

Hi,
Am going to be in Morocco in January and was hoping to climb Toubkal. Was trying to arrange this with a UK based tour operator but for various reasons this dosen't look like it will work out. Does anyone know of a reliable local tour operator and if it is possible to hire crampons and ice pick locally? Thanks.
