Ascent Trip Report

We had an awesome 9 days on Mount Kilimanjaro. The weather was perfect this time a year. And it was great going up in the off season. It was like having the mountain to ourselves. We took the Lemosho route, which gave us lots of time to acclimatize. Plus we stayed in the Crater for 1 night, which I higher recommend. This was the best climb I have ever done.
