Following up on the recent trips to the Aberdares, the first, from Shamata to Satima, the second, from Njabini to Mutubio, Alex and Jeff will do the missing link, from Mutubio to Shamata.
23rd afternoon - drive from Nairobi to camp at Mutubio
24th - hike from Mutubio to “middle of nowhere” campsite
25th - hike from “middle of nowhere” to Satima campsite
26th - hike from Satima to Shamata top camp
If we get enough interest + separate leader then we can help to setup a second group that can repeat the Shamata to Satima hike...
So let Jeff(j.mariner at cgiar dot org) + Alex(alextibwitta at alspride dot com) know if you are interested in the 3 day traverse or the 2 day out and back please.
They will be at the club on 10th January to discuss this...
If any one or two climbers would like to join Andrew Wielochowski and Arshad for this trip? You have to be self-sufficient in climbing gear, camping, drinks and food and share the costs for the car. Other costs will be for Park entry, camping, etc.
If only one climber is coming, then he/she needs to be reasonably competent so that he/she can join them on a rope of three, and they may be able to pool the food/drinks.
We shall be leaving Nairobi around 6 am on Friday 6th and back in Nairobi by mid-afternoon on Monday 9th January. Anyone interested should contact Arshad -> email@example.com
