By January 3, 2013Current Trips

10th January 2013: The group have all arrived home now. It was a very successful trip with further successes on St Johns Peak and an attempt on Midget Peak although they had backed of due to very bad conditions. Very well done to you all!

The two highest summits of Mt. Kenya, Bation and Nelion, can be reached via a long rock climb.

27th December: A very muffled call came in today from Dave Kenyon today reporting that all is well except the weather has been very wet. Tonight the 3 climbers will reach the Austrian Hut while the two trekkers split off and head off round the mountain to Two Tarn camp.

2nd January 2013: Dave called from Austrian camp where he is now with the second group of climbers who today successfully reached the summits. Derek, Riaan and Dave managed both Bation and Nelion while David summited Nelion with our Kenyan guide Robin. The weather has improved and the whole team are pleased with their success.

Previously, on New Year’s Eve, Dave summited Nelion with Dolores who had managed to gain one more day by extending her stay in Kenya.

WELL DONE TO YOU ALL
