Comments: Did this as the descent from Fishhook. Definitely stay on the ridge as much as possible; we stayed more north off the ridge and it turned into some sketchy exposed moves. Expect lots of scree/sand on the descent. Lots and lots.

Comments: The ground in front of this climb is now more sloped and narrow since some of the path fell away after all of the rain. We plugged in a few cams at the base as anchors (BD 0.4 or a #3 works); I would strongly suggest anchoring in with gear before belaying on this climb. I can totally see someone taking a step backward to look for their climber and then slipping down the slope. Maybe someday someone will put a bolt at the base.

Comments: Just did the Lemosho to Western Breach route last week. The Western Breach is probably the 'hardest' summit route on Kilimanjaro. I didn't know what I was getting into climbing it--if you put a foot of snow on it, an exposed Grade III rock scramble at 18000 ft turns into a real mountaineering adventure, not just a hike. In 2006, 3 climbers were killed here due to rock fall, and they closed the route for a few years. The route is pretty steep and challenging. Definitely the way to go if you're a... more >>

Comments: Climbed this a few weeks ago. Handren guide is wrong--follow the text NOT his picture. I wound up cutting into P2 of Ballantine Blast, and then climbing up (or rather, bushwhacking) up to lover's ledge. Once on the ledge, exit climber's left down and across the first brushy gully. Scramble back up the other side up about 150 feet to join up with Frogland descent in the second gully (don't try to hike down into the first brushy gully, the trail goes nowhere).

Comments: Be careful, ground bee nest at the base of the second pitch of red pillar on the GT ledge. Saw a dude get swarmed by bees today when their rope went through it as he was belaying.

Comments: Did the car-to-car last weekend. Started the hike in at 1am and got to iceberg lake by 6:30pm, weather was perfect; barely any wind. Topo was right on for the approach; we had no problems with the ledges and following the cairns up from upper boy scout to iceberg.

Took 2L on the hike in and refilled at iceberg lake with a filter. Like vic, we went light--60M rope, 2 sets of nuts (although we used only 1 set), doubles of 0-3 in TCU/master cams (could have just brough 1 set... more >>
