Upon arrival in the village of Kurobonla at the end of the road we obtained a guide from the local Kuranko paramount chief. I remember his name as Marrah. I believe it was in our first year (March 1969) that we had as our first guide a secondary school student who I remember as named Kewuley Marrah. The chief was an old man when we met him. He provided us with this man who led us from Kurobonla up to the village of Sokurella and eventually to the summit. In this picture our guide sits above where we made camp, with the summit of Bintumani above him. Photo © by Chad Finer.
