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 noticably thicker and easier to breathe, and the frigid temperatues of the summit a distant memory.
