Having successfully summited Kili a couple times myself, I wanted to share with you all my look for the coldest, longest, most difficult and most rewarding part of the trek...the night of summit! I made this handy dandy pictorial gear guide to give you an idea of what has worked for me (spoiler alert: lots of layers)! All this gear is tried and true and has gotten me to the top safe, sound and toasty (relatively speaking)!
The great part is I just keep adding layers along the way to the top. I'm basically just wearing different combos of this gear all 7 days I'm on the mountain (with a few changes of midweight tops and pants along the way). So, if you have these pieces (or one's that are comparable) it's a good start to making sure you're in shape (gear-wise) for Kilimanjaro!Read More
