I read that Kilimanjaro is an easy climb, really just a high-altitude hike. How hard is it?
If you are in great aerobic shape, it can be "easy" on a perfect weather day and on the normal routes. But as with most of the extreme altitude climbs, Kilimanjaro can have brutal summit weather with temperatures at 0F and if the winds are blowing, the wind chills can be very dangerous. Climbers die on KIlimanjaro. Also, remember this is almost 6,000 meters, 20,000 feet so AMS is always a risk as is HAPE or HACE.
Is an Kilimanjaro climb dangerous?
Kilimanjaro is a relatively safe climb by the standard routes. However, there are always deaths on these big mountains. Kilimanjaro is no different. The most common cause of death is probably altitude related and that is from going too fast and not taking the time to acclimatize. This is why selecting the proper guide service is critical.
Was altitude a problem on this climb?
Yes! Anytime you are above 8,000' you can experience problems. Kilimanjaro is a serious high altitude mountain. Even though the normal routes are not technically difficult, the altitude takes it toll on climbers each year thus the 66% success rate. We had several members of our team struggle (including vomiting) with the altitude on the summit push but everyone pushed through and we had 100% success.
What kind of equipment did you use?
Mostly I use the same gear I used on Rainier. Lot's of layers. It is always critical to protect my toes, fingers and face since these are most susceptible to frost bite. As for warmth, I always wear a knit cap and at least liner gloves when I get the least bit cool - regardless of the outside temp. I used simple trekking pants and top for the lower levels but got serious for summit night. I use a 3 layer system of Merino wool base layer (top and bottom) then my Patagonia Guide pants. On top I had my base layer, Patagonia Hoody as a mid layer then my top wind or warmth layer e.g. Patagonia Micro Puff. When it got windy, I added my rain shell, the Patagonia Rain Shadow jacket. See my gear page for a complete discussion and my gear list updated for 2013. I am very pleased with all my gear but had a few standouts that I note on my gear page. This a video about the gear I used.
Do I have to be extremely fit to take part in this trek
Yes. If you attempt to climb Kilimanjaro without the proper training you may not enjoy the trek as much as you would have with adequate training. The best way to train for Kilimanjaro is to strap a pack on your back and go hiking as much as possible. By doing so your feet and joints will become accustomed to the constant walking you will face on the trek. Also be sure to hit the gym!
