Pictures of Mt Kilimanjaro Climb

April 17, 2012

In March 2012, James Beardall – from the United Kingdon – climbed Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for ASYM’s work with street children in Zimbabwe. You can read about his climb and his plans for this adventure in past posts.

Since his return James has shared with us some of his amazing pictures and his comments on each of them:

Kilimanjaro from the air – stunning and awe inspiring.

Kilimanjaro from the south in the Karanga Valley.  Heavy snow fell on the higher reaches of the mountain down to 14,000 feet whist we were on the mountain, following a stunning tropical thunderstorm!

Mount Meru (15,000 feet) to the west, taken from half way up Kibo.

Kilimanjaro after the storm, taken from the Shira Plateau.

James at Barranco Valley, with Kilimanjaro summit looming above.

Early morning camp – James feeling exuberant!  There is that pesky, elusive peak again———- never seems to get any nearer!

This is the summit – Uhuru Peak – almost 20,000 feet!!!!!!!! My friend Martin Charlesworth is the tall guy on the left (Leader of Barnabas Community Church).  I am the little guy on the right!

This is the view going down from Stella Point.  It drops down very steeply and once out of the snow comprises a wild scree descent at high speed! – leg crunching stuff.  Much harder than going up!!
