Ascent Trip Report

Did the climb with my dad and it was amazing!!!! It was my first real altitude hike besides 14ers in Colorado. Definately another level of mental challenge, but nothing too much :) We took the longer Lemosho route for the scenery and to acclimate and I highly recommend this route despite its length. If anyone wants to climb this mountain, let me know and I can give you my recommended guide who was great (Kili requires a guide). Amazing mountain to stand on considering its remoteness to any other nearby!!!!
