Ascent Trip Report

Mixed sun and cloud for 3 day ascent. Swirling fog during the mid- afternoon main summit. Very pleasant, though I was quite tired by the end. Lots of charismatic megafauna on the meru plain at the end. Once again supported by a great team from Trekili Eco Adventures, including Very appropriately named Goodluck Mwamba, who was with me on Kili a few days earlier.
