Mount Kilimanjaro

Mount Kilimanjaro Trip Report (#3766)

It was the most exhausting experience of my life - especially since I sat and waited for my friends at Gillman's Point for over half an hour and got extremely cold and sleepy!! Ah well, that's a lesson I've learnt and won't repeat!

Running back down the scree at the end of the climb was probably the most fun thing of the final ascent - although the sense of achievement is still with me and glowing strongly one month on.

If anyone reading this is thinking of trying it - DO IT! but train hard and properly first. It is freezing cold and extremely taxing physically - but wow, you'll be one of the few (if growing number of bods) who made the ascent and saw the sun rise over Kenya!
