Ascent Trip Report

A Jagged Globe / Keys Hotel trek via the Lemosho Glades Route. Superb acclimatisation on a lovely route and 100% of the group summited!

We did this trip to celebrate our joint 50th birthdays and to mark my wife's recovery from the surgery and chemotherapy associated with cancer. What a life-enhancing trip!
