Mount Kilimanjaro Trip Report (#3605)

I Want to clarify summit entry regarding ascent of Kilimanjaro On August 31, 2004. The climber that died was in a party that summited the day before we did (August 30, 2004). That party was not associated with our climb at all. I do not know the circumstances of the death although it is being researched.
My son and I climbed Kibo with the assistance of F&S Kiliwarriors which did an outstanding job. They have oxygen and a Gamow bag on all ascents of Kilimanjaro via the Western Breach/Crater Camp Route.
I highly recommend them should you wish to attempt Kilimanjaro. See my comments as well as others regarding F&S Kiliwarriors at http://www.go-kili.com.
