Beautiful

I read about these mountains when I first got interested in climbing, and they've remained a fantasy region ever since. Thanks for the tantalizing photos!

Thanks...

what an adventure... and yes, I am one of those who did not hear the Rwenzori name before.

Great story

about these fantastic mountains! I remember reading about them in my teens, and thinking "What a strange place to climb snow-clad mountains." Congrats with Margherita!

Great post

I also read about these mountains when I first got interested in climbing. Hope to combine a climbing trip there with a visit of the mountain gorillas...thanks for the post.

tally ho

great photos and description of an exotic locale. For sure, "Mountains of the Moon" is a great film ...Burton and Speake, circa 1857-58.

Thanks for Posting!

Great trip report, and congrats on the climb. It's nice to have a first hand account of the ascent attached to the page. You certainally seem to have had a wet and wonderful time in the range. I too felt like I'd been there enough as I descended back into the sun after my trip, but now, more and more, I am hoping for the day that I get to return to that mysterious place.
