6/26/87 Mt Kenya

staying near Kami Hut

Point Dutton, the small peak to the far right.

Remember the rule: No good deed goes unpunished! When it came time for the Point Dutton group to get up this morning at 4am, Charlie decided not to go. It would have been great if he had tried to wake up one of us that volunteered not to go, so we could take his place. If I had known, I would have jumped at the chance to make the ascent. I watched the climb all morning from camp with a pair of binoculars. It looked so fantastic, I was very envious. Those of us who stayed behind spent most of day practicing more top-rope climbing.
