I've climbed the Breach route twice!

The Western Breach section is just a small part of a bigger trek that can originate at Lemosho, Shira, Machame or Umbwe.

Where do you start and how long is your trek?

We start at Lemosha via Shira 1 and it's
9 days. We camp at the crater too.

I forgot to mention we are using
F&S Kiliwarrior for our climb. Has anyone used them?

my husband and i just returned from 2 weeks with f&s kiliwarriors-western breach route/safari--YOU WILL BE SO HAPPY YOU CHOSE KILIWARRIORS...they are the best on the mountain and you will be the envy of all other campers. the porters/guides will take care of you like a family and you will not be disappointed--the food-fabulous and plentiful; water--excellent; the equipment used--top of the line... i would recommend using the diamox for altitude sickness; you will get headaches/and feel a bit of nausea--the ones that used the diamox seemed to fare much better than those that did not; bring WARM clothes for the top---layers of fleece work great with a light weight,waterproof, gortex shell; if you want anymore info, i will send my phone #. kiliwarriors were beyond excellent!!!!!!
