Beta & Brews: Climbing Kilimanjaro's Western Breach Route

Beta & Brews: Climbing Kilimanjaro's Western Breach Route

A virtual Beta & Brews via a live Zoom presentation by Mountaineers CEO Tom Vogl and former Mountaineers Board President Geoff Lawrence on their February 2019 climb of Kilimanjaro's Western Breach route in central Tanzania.

With the Stay at Home order, we want to offer ongoing virtual events to connect with our community. Join us for a virtual version of Beta & Brews - you can even ask questions! BYOB and enjoy it from the comfort of your own home while connecting with our community.

At 19,341 ft, Kilimanjaro is one of the Seven Summits, the tallest mountain in Africa, and the highest free standing mountain in the world. The Western Breach is one of the least climbed routes on Kili. It is somewhat more difficult than the standard routes and more exposed to objective hazards such as ice and rockfall. However, it is also one of the most spectacular ways to experience the rooftop of Africa. Hear from Tom and Geoff how to reduce risk and have a great experience on the Western Breach or other lesser-climbed routes on Kili. 

Have a beer (at home) with us and watch the presentation!
