What a fabulous feeling to finally see the crater rim at 0500 in the half light before dawn. We arrived at Uhuru a little before sunrise and had the summit to ourselves for a glorious few minutes. The opening views as the new day begins across the crater are magnificent. We ascended the Machame Route which was superb. Took Diamox, had few problems with aclimatisation. Summit day is a very, very, very long day !!
