Descent to Marangu Gate 1905m via Mandara Huts. After summitting, the team descended down the loose scree below Gilman’s Point all the way to Kibo Huts (4750m), a quick lunch, and then off on the dusty saddle to Horomobo Huts at 3700m. The following day, in sub-zero temps, the team left at 645am and reached Mandara Huts at 945am; about half way down the 20km descent to Marangu Gate. As we had paid for the rescue car in our park fees, we decided to call it up to cut short the final descent section (!). Dinner at Arusha after a good shower and scrub – Indian food! Naans, rice, lamb curries, fried chicken and a few beers! Unfortunately, we came down to discover that our beloved adopted fur-kid of tem years, Bandit, passed away on our summit day. This climb is dedicated to his memory.
