N Face of Kenya info?

Postby fossana » Sun Feb 20, 2011 5:13 am

I have a bunch of frequent flyer mileage and vacation banked and am planning a trip to Kenya and Madagascar starting in Sept. I'm looking for logistical tips for the N Face of Mt Kenya. I have the Burns guidebook and Wielochowski map. I'm not interested in hiring a guide so no guide spam please. Thanks in advance.

Yes, I still looking for a partner. Kevin gets first dibs b/c he's one of my climbing partners and I know I wouldn't kill him ;)

Sure thing

I'll be summiting Kilimanjaro on september 12 and I think that I'll need a few days to get in position. - my guess right now is that I'll be ready sep 14 or 15 for Mt Kenya (I need to be back in Europe sep 23)

I have posted "looking for climbing partner elsewhere" and whoever teams up first gets the other end of the rope :)

Realizing this was 2 years ago but not a lot on SP about Mt Kenya...

Did you guys end up going? How did the route look at that time of year? I'm going to be in Kenya on business this September and wondering if it seems worthwhile to try to put something together.
