This is the most recommended rock climbing itinerary where you have a bit more acclimatization time as well as options for second or third summit days to accommodate weather. We also recommend trying to include a complete or partial circumnavigation of the peak as part of your itinerary. This gives you more time to acclimate and also to get to know all sides of the mountain. Last, we really like to exit via the Chogoria route, spending nights at the Hall's Tarns and also at Bandas, at road end. This is a beautiful and scenic route.

"I wouldnt mind another safari with Economic Adventure Safaris. The last we did was a trip from Kenya to Tanzania. Awesome is the word. Everything worked much more than we had anticipated. Fantastic tours with good guides. We'll sure be back, soon." ~~ Jacqueline Mosh, USA.
