Being an experienced fell walker who for years had wandered English hills, this was an ambition that did not have a failure clause.I thought I was on a winner suffering nothing on altitude sickness, but the lack of sustainable oxygen was an experience that I encountered on our final ascent from Barrafu.the morning temperatures took your breath away but the scenery and achievement was worth it all. The sense of personal success will stay with me all my life,The walk through changing terrain and snow in Africa, wow!
