Climbed via the Machame Route to the Shira Plateau, then veered off to do the Western Bridge Route, an excellent route for those in shape. Instead of going around the mountain for an additional day, at the the Lava Rock/Tower dont turn and head toward Baranco, continue straight to the top of the Arrow Glacier, camp til mid-night then its straight up to the rim, then up one more snow wall and there you are, Uhuru Peak. Anyway you go its a great climb with an abundance of scenery, culture and fun to be had by all.
