  1. What an encouraging video! Proud of you ! What a beautiful self accomplishment-the scenery was absolutely beautiful…
    You have sparked my interest in mountain climbing, i had plans on seeing the mountains once i reach kenya but never thought about climbing them ..

  3. Great video. I felt like I was there with you. What is your next mountain? I found your video after reading the book "No Picnic on Mount Kenya by Felice Benuzzi". It is a great book about Italian POWs in WWII that escaped from a POW camp and climbed Mt. Keyna and then went back to the camp to be POWs. They traveled the same route as you. You should check it out.

  4. Hi, great video, a nice insight into what to expect. I am planning to climb mount Kenya in March and wanted some advice on what you think would help in training for it, also regarding the clothes you had, what type of jackets etc do you advise to wear/take with you as I noticed you mentioned quite a lot how cold you were feeling. Any other tips etc, if you were to do it again? Thanks a lot! Once again really informative video with some lovely visuals.
