September Rongai, Northern Circuit and the Western Breach
Get your boots on and try your luck with the ultimate climber’s climb of Kilimanjaro. Starting September 19 we will be doing a guided version of the Rongai Route, taking the little known Northern Circuit Route around the base of Kibo Crater, and attacking the summit via the Western Breach and Crater Camp.
Some people say Kilimanjaro is easy, and some people would agree, but anyone who has done it will tell you it is no walk in the park. However it does have no technical aspects to speak of, and if you are looking for something just a little bit left of center, a little bit more challenging than the norm, and if you think you a too tough for any of the standard Kilimanjaro routes then this one might be for you.
This is a 8 day trip, starting off at the Rongai Trailhead, Approaching the Western Breach via the Northern Circuit and approaching the summit via Crater Camp. It will be a small group, exclusive and fully guided and supported option.
The Northern Circuit has fallen into disuse over recent years, and it is way off the beaten track, and of course the Western Breach is by no means the commonly used access to the high peaks. A feature of the trip is a night spent in Crater Camp at over 18 000ft which is not the granny version of camping. This will be a spectacular climb, but not for the faint hearted.
If this is the 2009 trip for you then get in touch with me as soon as you can for prices, detailed itinerary and other general information. Places are limited and time is short.
