Trip was arranged through Wild Frontiers in South Africa. Did the Mechame Route. All six in our group (5 guys and a girl) reached the summit just before sunrise but was heavily overcast so didn't see much of the view. None of our group suffered from too much mountain sickness although we did pass a couple of groups who seemed to be struggling. On the way down Mawenzi looked incredible with the sunrise behind it.

A big thank you to our Chief Guide Simon Tete and the crew that was arranged through Keys Hotel in Moshi.
