Via Marangu route. Weather clear above 3500m, warm days (28C approx) cool nights (0C approx). No problems up to Kibo at 4700m. Team's ascent from to Kibo to Uhuru was quite rapid, about 6 hours thirty minutes in total, in time for sunrise. Trek from Gillman's to Uhuru being slowest part, one hour fortyfive minutes to ascend 200m. Cold on top (hard to tell but estimate -10c to -15C).
Guides Ronald, Mekson and Joseph were wonderful...respect. Big hug to Suzanne Muskita, Explore Worldwide team leader.
