It was a fun trip. Walking on the tropical rain forest with mud is more difficult than climbing the actual mountain. I thought it was a practical joke when i was walking on the mud. But above 13000 ft, it was fun. Summit day is tough. The last day you will probably get good sleep is in the Barronco valley. After that its doubtful you will get a chance to sleep till the summit day. Summit day is tough. Keep all the camera, and water in the bag warm from freezing. While coming down the Mweka route, the mud is horrible. With your legs soar, and body really tired, it seems never ending with the mud. I have never seen such mud in my life anywhere in the world.
Anyway have fun and enjoy baloo
