MOUNT KENYA CLIMB NARO MORU

There are 3 principal summit routes (and 4 lesser used routes), namely Sirimon, Chogoria and Naro Moru.

These can either stand alone, or together as variations with other routes.

The fastest route and most direct to Point Lenana is the Naro Moru route. Given the short number of days it is often a very popular route with groups. It is also a lot steeper than other routes and also has the famous 'vertical bog,' which is a steep section of mud and best traversed in gum boot. Because of its steepness, it has less acclimatisation chances.

The route makes use of Met Station and McKinders Camp.
