The Tanzania National Parks authorities have recently announced that with effect from 1st of December 2007, the Western Breach Route of Kilimanjaro (Arrow Glacier) will be open to the public again.

The Western Breach route had been closed after a rockfall accident in January 2006 which has been attributed to the melting of ice in ice-scree composite caused by global warming. ZARA Tours will however not offer treks using the Western Breach Route, as it is highly risky and extremely dangerous.
