Returning to Stella Point from Uhuru Peak, we turn south and virtually slide down the side of the mountain over two kilometers of scree – loose shale, stones and pebbles that provide an almost-ski slope like experience.

Aside from a few embarrassing tumbles amidst the laughter and elation of our team, the journey down results in a drop of almost 2000m – the air becomes noticeably thicker and easier to breathe, and the frigid temperatures of the summit a distant memory.
