Part 4 of 4 of my Africa Adventure complete with a speed ascent of Kilimanjaro!
8hrs 11 minutes* from Umbwe Gate 1800m to the summit of Kilimanjaro 5895m via Western Breach, a beautiful evening ice climbing (incredible pictures to come), overnight camp in the crater & a swift 3 hours run back down this morning!
The summit video says it all - was an incredible day moving fast in the high altitude world I love so much!
Sadly Dave's cold caused an early retirement from Barranco Camp, which was gutting for both of us & Bruno suffered from severe leg problems so I pushed on & topped out alone. Not quite as fast as I had hoped but hey ho, these things happen...theres is always next time!
*For whats it's worth this is new English record.
