At age 65 it was a challenge of a lifetime. Used Shira plateau -- Western Breach. High camp was in the crater. Observed the grace of God at the Uhuru summit at 9:45 Sunday 3 October, 1999. Then the hard part of the trek began. My thanks go to my climbing companions who so patiently waited for me to get down. It was worth every bit of the time, effort, and expense. Enough credit can never be given to the guides and porters who make it all happen. They also unintentionally teach a great deal humility.
