This was the second time I (we) went to Kilimanjaro and I'm 63. The first time was Oct. 12, 2001 through Machame Route. This time was from Western Breach Route. I found out the hard way, the second trip was much fun and saw more of the scenery since we (8 of us) climbed during the day time. The Uhuru Peak was wonderful with storng wind and cold but we did not care. We were told that the oldest guy made it to the peak was 93 and 88 for women. We'll do it again anytime.
