Sirimon Rout Trek starts on the southern side of Mount Kenya at Sirimon Gate. This is a fairly steep route, and is recommended for the very fit or experienced trekker. Steep forest paths give way to heath and moorland before becoming rocky, and this is where the trek becomes more challenging. Approach to the summit is via Batian Point Detailed
