Sirimon Route provides the easiest access to the northern side of the central peaks and the North Face Standard Route on Batian. It is a beautiful route with fine views of Sendeo and Terere, and of the main peaks. Sirimon is regarded by many as he best ascent route of Kenya’s highest mountain and well within the capabilities of fit hill walkers.
