Climbed via the Rongai Route and descended via the Marangu route. Amazing views of Mawenzi Peak all along the route. Started the final ascent at 11:50pm on a clear full moon night and caught a spectacular sunrise past Gillman's Point. The guides did an excellent job setting the pace on summit day. Climbed without Diamox! Just drank plenty of water.
