Tanzanian ultrarunner Simon Mtuy claimed the overall round-trip record of 8h27m, on December 26, 2004, ascending via the shorter Umbwe Route and descending via the Mweka Route. Note that Mtuy's ascent was through the Western Breach, which was closed for a couple of years due to a rock slide, but apparently reopened in January 2008.
