Reviews - What do customers think about Making the Climb: What a Novice Climber Learned About Life on Mount Kilimanjaro?
Quick read Jan 17, 2008
The book provides basic insight and information needed to climb Mt. Kilimanjaro. Based on a first hand climbing experience the reader is taken through a day by day experience of the 7 day Lemosho Route (Barafu route for Kibo ascend). The author is a novice climber and describes the challenges most climbers will face in detail. It is an easy and quick read especially if you skip the prayers throughout the chapters. I enjoyed the read but I would not recommend using this book in preparation for your trek however, this book provides enough information for anyone trying to decide whether to do the climb or not.
