Kili was a wonderful experience! Me, Linda and Trine climbed the Machame route. Last camp was Arrow Glacier, then we summitted via the Western Breach. Reached Uhuru Peak at 08.25 a.m. Had some heavy snow the last night but luckily the weather cleared up prior to sumitting. Temperatures around -7 degC. Good visibility at the top and fantastic views!! Used 6 days up-down. Only negative experience: Brought with us poor headlights from home and ran out of batteries (double set) after 3 hours up the Western Breach...pls don't do same mistake. Thanks a lot to Mr. Mountain Cheetah and his crew for exellent guiding, superb cooking & singing!

Love you, Linda! Gleder meg til aa gaa paa Slogen sammen med deg til sommeren!!
