Konigstein, Brandberg, Namibia

Has anyone climbed to the highest point in Namibia, the Konigstein on the Brandberg? Can you offer a little beta, distances, trail conditions where there is one. Would it be to hot to climb in January? Can I do it in a day? Any more info....thanks

Margherita Peak, Mt Stanley, Rwenzori Mountains of the Moon

I'm planning to trek the Mountains of the Moon at the end of July and make a bid on Mt Stanley's Margherita Peak. Anyone been up there recently and can comment on it? What's the condition of the glacier? What would you rate the rock pitches up to the summit? Any advice on how to make the slog through the bog less miserable? Recommended guides? Many thanks for your insights.

Seeking Cultural Insight

My climbing partner and I have booked our tickets to Kenya and are now arranging for a trek up Mt. Kenya.

Through a recommendation of a Sumitpost member I have received a quote from the company he used. I think that the price is perfectly fair and reasonable. However, my climbing partner thinks that it is outrageous, despite being the cheapest of any of the companies we asked. I would like to change his point ...
