Climb Mount Kenya
Thousands of people climb Mount Kenya every year and most of the travelers reach only Point Lenana (4,985 m) because making it to the summit, crested by twin icy peaks called Batian and Nelion require experienced and prepare climbers.
In general, the climbing season is from July to early October. There around 30 technical routes, though the most frequent route to the summit is on the South East Face, approaching the mountain along the Chogoria route. This climb requires at least 5-6 days. The final approach to the summit requires a steeping ascent of a tarn before crossing the large Lewis Glacier to climb to Nelion. The following day a crossing to Batian is made. A north face ascent means a direct assault on Batian, with an overnight camp at the foot of Firmin Tower.
