Kibo Huts

After your time on the summit, head down back the route you ascended to Gilman's Point. Look down the steep face of scree and irregular rock that you had slowly climbed up all night. The 3,500 foot face may seem imposing at first, but after scrambling down the initial rocky portion, you will enter the long, soft scree slope that is more like volcanic sand. You can nearly run down the scree once the sun had warmed it and descend the slope in about 1 hour. At Kibo Hut, stop for lunch to rest a bit more before the long hike to Horombo Huts.
