Went up the Umbwe route via Lava Tower and Western Breach in a group of 2. One rest day at Lava Tower. Then, midnight, up to the top and all the way down in one day (defnitely exhausting and bad for your knees but worth it if you don't want to stay overnight at the low camp). Descent seemed a bit boring compared to the climbing bits at Umbwe route. Didn't see any other groups until end of day 2. Met millions of people on the way down.
