The Shira Route is a relatively gentle and incredibly scenic route
to the Roof top of Africa ("Uhuru Peak" Uhuru a Swahili
word which mean Liberation). Encompassing the Shira Plateau, this
route provides breathtaking views of the African landscape below.
Finally, the Western Breach Summit path is a more difficult route
to the summit which incorporates some serious scrambling and climbing.
It is thus generally favored by those individuals looking to add
a bit of an extra challenge to their climbing experience.
