Machame route video


I just watched this video from Trial Magazine where one of the staff members did a 6-day Machame climb. It's a nice overview of the route and what it really feels like.

Last time I did the Machame route I took 7 days and found the extra day well worth it. Instead of hiking directly from Baranco to Barafu (final summit camp) we had an additional day with a stop at Karanga instead. If you have the time I highly recommend an extra day to acclimate. As the video correctly points out, it's not a technically hard mountain but the altitude can make or break you.

I also really liked hearing from the guide, Samuel. Nice touch.
