How hard is it to climb Mount Kilimanjaro?

Here’s a Washington Post article about climbing Mount Kilimanjaro:

If you’re in good physical condition — Burleson recommends doing cardio an hour a day and hiking six miles twice a month — you should be able to master the mountain. However, climbers are susceptible to altitude sickness, which is why Burleson recommends traveling with a company knowledgeable in Western health care. In addition, when researching companies, ask the tour operator about its safety record, experience on the mountain and medical skills. Also, request references from past travelers.
