Ascent Trip Report

Drove with a group from Naivasha to the start of the trail. There is a maintained trail all the way up to the rim. It's a strenous walk up there, 3,1 kms according to the sign at the entrance, but not hard for a fit person. It is however INSANELY dusty. Not covering up your camera between taking pictures is a bad idea, dust will definitely find it's way into the mechanics (I learned that the hard way). The view at the top is spectacular, and there is a trail around the rim as well.
