How-to Climb Kilimanjaro on Google Helpouts

How to Climb Kilimanjaro

Kilimanjaro, the roof of Africa, is a prized goal for trekkers and mountaineers. It's well within the capabilities of many, if not most, people. The failure rate has been reported at around 30%. About 1/3 of the people who go there do not get to the summit. 

Why? 

Many people are unprepared, pack wrong, train wrong and don't take it seriously enough. This mountain is nearly 20,000' high. Almost as tall as McKinley (Denali) in the USA. If you want to increase your chances of getting to the top, pack the right gear, clothing and footwear, train right for the trek and climb, and decide which of the many guiding options is best for you, schedule a Google Helpout now and get a jumpstart on success.
