Is the Machame Route hard?

Inquisitively, however the Machame Way is extensively calculated to be firmer than the Marangu Way (and is thus labeled the Whiskey Route, in opposition to Marangu’s softer name of the ‘Coca Cola trail’), the number of trekkers who reach the top using this way is slightly but meaningfully higher.

Whether this is indication that the Machame Way lets people to adapt better because it’s longer, chiefly if you opt to take the Barafu Route to the peak, or whether this higher success degree is just a sign that more experienced, hardened explorers – i.e. the very people who are most probable to reach the peak– are more motivated to select this route, is anyone’s guess.
