Climb Mt Kenya, this is the climber‘s summit of Mount Kenya is regarded by most mountaineers as a true gem. Standing like a sentinel in the midst of the vast Kenyan savannah, it is known as “a mountaineer’s mountain” – and true to its word, there is no easy way up this African giant. Mount Kenya offers high altitude rock climbing, without equal - the routes are long, up to 20 pitches, and vary from moderate (Alpine grade 4) to extreme (Alpine grade 6 ).

From early December to March the Shipton route is at its best, and it is this route that leads to the Nelion summit of the twin peaked mountain. The weather is best on the Shipton route from December to mid-March, but be prepared for a wide range of temperatures, from freezing nights with snowy and windy conditions to bright sunshine, intensified by high altitude. To climb Mount Kenya you need to be an experienced rock climber with ability to climb up to VS (F5). High altitude experience is not required, but it is recommended.

Due to the technical nature of this itinerary there will only be a one to one guide client ratio, and the trek will be porter-supported. We trek in via the visually spectacular Chogoria route, which features huge ecological diversity and the opportunity for wildlife sightings, including buffalo, elephant, zebra and antelope.
