Machame Route  Sucess!

One of the easiest mountains I have walked to. The views on the summit plateau were stunning!

Lemosho Route  Sucess!

Great climb with great people. Perfect weather. Very cool experience for Liz and me to celebrate 25 together.

Second climb  Sucess!

Another climb for Downside Up, raising money for Russian children with Down's syndrome. And another fantastic trip on the Marangu route. Very little change from 1997 when I first came - accommodation and route much as they were; saw many of the guides we orginally had too. No snow this time though on the crater rim - in 97 there was about a foot of it all round the rim and within the crater itself.

Machame route  Sucess!

Technically an easy mountain, it's challenge is more the altitute. Fascinating flora, from jungle, tundra, desert to ice landscape you see everything.

Marangu Route  Sucess!

Seven years after the first attempt, made it to Uhuru Peak together with my friend Rafa. Though suffering from cold at Gilman's Point, a wonderful experience.

Great peak  Sucess!

The Marangu is a very long route but the reward is worth it. With my friend eza reached the summit at 7:00 with perfect views.

Machame route

Together with Joost Gransberg and Jurrian Lucas, 6 days, great first 5000+ experience. faced quite some altitude challenges around 4600, just below Kibu. Beautifull mountain! Bring warm clothing and try to find a good guide ;-) (stay critical yourself, local 'guides' have different attitudes towards safety than you might be used to find in Europe etc, they are good people though!). Enjoy! Koen

Machame  Sucess!

Really beautiful mountain and easy to climb. Summited it at the age of 16. Just keep in mind to move slowly to prevent mountain sickness...

Umwe route  Sucess!

We decided to take the hardess route to climb our first of the seven. But it wasn't so difficult. In fact, only the last night was very difficult, because of the bad weather, very strong wind and snowing! You'll see on our pictures, there is no sun for us on that day! It was the worst weather on the summit that night till 1992! well! That's what our guide said?

Best route, nice point of view!

Twice in a Month  Sucess!

Great two climbs of Kili. 100% to the top both trips :)

Blizzard at Summit!  Sucess!

On the evening we approached the summit, the moon was shining bright and we could see the sister peak. However, as soon as we reached the rim, the weather turned on us. The winds were 30+ mph and you couldn't see more than a few feet in front of you. Sadly, it ended as soon as we were on our descent. Too bad it didn't end when we reached the peak so that we could see the glacier.

Success!  Sucess!

4 days up on the Machame route and 2 days down on the Mweka. Gareth, Mark, Nick and I along with our two guides Jon and Jon reached the summit at 5:20 am December 10th. I'm proud to say that I carried all my own personal gear excluding food. A very fun trip and a dream come true! Take a look at the Trip Report.

Amazing  Sucess!

By far, the biggest mountain I've ever seen. Hiked the Machame Route. Couldn't help but look at Mawenzi in amazement.
