I reached Uhuru Peak on feb. 7 2004 via the Machame route with my dad, 4 new friends, and the great guides of a&k. We had fabulous weather, quite cold and plenty of snow but no wind, and a lovely moonlight night. The view of moonlit Mawenzi slowly shrinking as you climb higher and higher until you're suddenly looking down on it at Stella Point is not to be forgotten! We hope to go back to conquer the breach next year- and hopefully won't be so hypoxic that we forget how to work the camera at the summit like last time. I also managed to climb Mt. Meru and Ol Doinyo Lengai during my 4-month teaching stint in Tanzania. Highly recommended in addition to Kili if you ever get the chance.
