Marangu route  Sucess!

Did the climb in 5 days/4 nights. Started from the Kibo huts at midnight and made the summit at 6 AM in the dark with my guide John from Zara tours. It was cold & windy at the peak, so only stayed for about 5 minutes. Hiked back down to the Mandara huts and crashed early. Easy walk out the following morning back to the Marangu trailhead.

Kibo  Sucess!

Went with seven friends and Kilimanjaro Brothers. Stayed in Moshi and went via the Machame Route. Made me respect altitude a lot more as while I escaped with only headaches I saw a lot of people puking, not able to sleep and just generally feeling shit.

I would go back to Tanzania in a heartbeat!

Machame Route  Sucess!

Fun and scenic 6 day trek to the top. The last day was a bit of a challenge because of the altitude. Had a fun three day safari afterwards at Ngorongoro crater.

Rongai route, 'unsupported'  Sucess!

Climbed over 6 days. I climbed 'unsupported' with no porters or cook. Guide was mandatory. Preparing and hauling all food, gear, water and setting my own climbing schedule made the hike very rewarding. I made the decision to climb to the summit in daylight, which worked out wonderfully. I left Kibo Huts at 7:20 a.m. and reached Uhuru peak at 12:25 p.m.

Machame Route

Did 6 days on the Machame Route. Every day was easy but the last one. Reaching Stella Point was the hardest thing I have ever done. Can't say the trip was a failure without the true summit, but won't say that I am not disappointed in how everything turned out. I did everything wrong on summit day. Over ate the night before, did not drink enough and went way to fast even though I was asking to slow down. Tried to do it on the cheap, and it was an expensive lesson. One tip on the tips. Make certain you determine what they are prior to commencing the climb. It will save a lot of headaches afterward.

On the Roof of Africa!  Sucess!

Trekked up through the 4 different climate zones and different tree forests on the Lemosho side. Picked up a little Swahili from the ZARA porters along the way. 7 days of tent camping in luxury. Acclimatization schedule is pretty descent with a Lava tower excursion on day 3. Barranco wall is class 2 scramble in places. Was fine with the euphoria above 15k on summit day! Spent lots of time on the 19K summit for congratulations, watching sunrise, taking pictures of a shrinking glacier, and reapplying sunblock. Dusty trail on descent, with light winter wind. Enjoy!
