Kilimanjaro is the highest summit in Africa making it one of the 7 Summits.

A successful summit was made via the Umbwe route – the steepest most direct ascent but rarely used. It is now closed due to rockfall. It is classified as non-technical as all of Kili is but can be very slippery with narrow passages. Chances for High Altitude Sickness are increased due to the more rapid ascent.
