Did the summit using a local agent from Moshi as a warm-up for Kili. Both the Mt. Meru (aka Socialist Peak) and Little Meru was a great experience and especially the main summit shall not be underestimated.. the slopes can be extremely steep and may turn dangerous if wet. We ( Joanne Vellino, UK and I ) summited at app. 6.05 AM and had the most beautiful sunrise towards Kilimanjaro. will post some photos online when I have the time.
I can surely recommend this summit to others, nice views, beautiful nature and one of the easier 4000+ peaks to bag.
