Western Breach Opened

It has been a few years since the landside on Mt Kilimanjaro that claimed the lives of a few people on the Western Breach. The breach opened up a few months ago, but I had not heard reports of any companies leading climbs up it – until today.

Apparently a father and daughter team, organized by Mountain Maddness who contracts with a local company (African Environments, I think), climbed the mountain without any problems.

I imagine now that more guiding companies will start climbing the Western Breach again and bring back the most adventurous route on Kilimanjaro. I can’t wait to get up there again.
