MAWENZI Expedition, March 2015!
Another March Success Story from KG Mountain Expeditions!!!!
On Sunday 22nd March 2015, Founder and Mountaineer Kenyan James KG Kagambi of KG Mountain Expeditions together with Swedish Mountaineer Per Ostberg [Star Fish Mobile] successfully climbed to reach the highest summit of Mawenzi at 5,149 metres (16,893 ft). KG reported ” It was quick and satisfying”
Mawenzi is one of the 3 cones of Kilimanjaro which has been closed due to persistent rockfall. The first ascent of the highest summit of Mawenzi was made on 29 July 1912, by the German climbers Oehler and Klute who christened it Hans Meyer Peak.
We hope this summit will influence the authorities to reopen the mountain to the public. Look out for more notes and updates from this page.
