Larry Ferlazzo’s post last week reminded me of the New York Times’ virtual tour of a climb up Kilimanjaro via the Shira route. If you’re looking at another route have no fear. At the Shira plateau the Shira, Lemosho and Machame routes all converge. So after that they’re all the same.
I like the details on oxygen levels and heart rates. It’s a great reminder that this is a real mountain with real risks and not just a tourist adventure.
