Kilimanjaro ChallengeSeptember 18th, 2018
They did it! Adrian (our MD) and Stuart reached the summit of Kilimanjaro on their challenge of a lifetime…
Back in the office after the most amazing adventure. Both Adrian and Stuart made it to the summit of Kilimanjaro; Uhuru Peak – 5895m, Africa’s highest point. Congratulations guys, such an achievement!
It was definitely one of the most difficult things the team have all ever done and certainly pushed them to the extremes. After 7 days of living in tiny tents on a mountain and in the rainforest – the shower and beer back at the hotel were well received!
The Kilimanjaro Challenge… The big adventure started on Friday 7th September with a flight to Moshi, Tanzania, with the trek beginning on the 9th from Londorossi Gate to the first stop at Big Tree Camp. Taking the Lemosho Glades route, considered to be one of the best and safest routes to the summit, success rate to the summit is high .
Final summit day was the 14th. The 3rd member of the team, Sue, reached the final Barafu camp at 4673m elevation but when setting off for the final summit in the freezing night temperatures, struggled with breathing and went back to camp.
The Kilimanjaro Challenge has been funded entirely by themselves but they’ve decided to raise some much needed cash for the wonderful charity Great Ormond Street Hospital.
