Mt Kenya Guide`s Diary:

It’s February and today is a hot sunny day with clear blue skies just like any other day in February.  I’m in Nairobi doing the final arrangements for a six day Mount Kenya climb using the Sirimon – Chogoria traverse.

Before going to bed, I make sure the vehicle is in good shape.  I also make a call to my helpers in Nanyuki (a town at the base of the mountain) just to make sure that things on that end are running smoothly.  I retire to bed early having organized my own climbing gear in my back pack.
