Did it via the Machame Route and down the Mweka. For my expereicnes, checkout my website. Pace set by the guides was perfect to aid accimatisation. As you don't have long to get used to the altitude. I would recommend the Machame route, as the scenery was amazing. The Barranco Wall looks impressive but is relatively easy. AMS only affected me, with a heavy feeling in the legs and loss of appetite, and didn't use Diamox either :) The view of the glaciers from Uhuru Peak is really awesome.
