Kilimanjaro
I've decided that I'd like climb a big old mountain soon and think Kilimanjaro looks a goodun, what with all the safari around it as well. Ideally I would do it as a fundraiser for cancer research.

Not entirely sure where to start on the whole project so wondered if the good people of WHO had any advice or tales. Or tips on who to book with, how to do it for charity etc.

Cheers!

And there was me thinking that this would be a thread relating to the seminal debut album by The Teardrop Explodes...

Re: Kilimanjaro
Go up Ben Nevis first. 1344m, you start at sea level. It's a long day if you're inexperienced. It will give you a very rough idea of how it feels to keep plodding upwards.

Highest I've been is 3776m in Japan. I got a bit of a headache but plenty of people were suffering with altitude there; Killimanjaro is a lot higher.

Good luck.

My brother in law has done it a couple of times. Said some people freak out because of the effects of altitude.

Re: Kilimanjaro
Not a difficult climb by any means so don't pack your crampons but altitude is a problem for some, apparently

Re: Kilimanjaro
Haha, perhaps 'climbing' wasn't the most appropriate word!

Re: Kilimanjaro
The only issue is the altitude.

Hardly mountaineering; it's a tough uphill walk. Great experience, lovely country, just enjoy it.

Ohhh ohhh ohhhh
Why would you pay to see me in a cage?
And why would you pay to see me in a cage?
Some men call the stage

Listen now I have gone
You will know
I was the only one that would have gladly died
What was wrong in the eyes of the unwell and unwise

They killed a man for his giro today
Wasn't very game, I didn't mind
I wasn't a money man anyway
They killed a man for his giro today

Why, would you pay
Why, would you pay
To see me in the cage
Just a hole across the stage

And know
When the night has gone
You might say
I was not the only the one that would've died
What was wrong in the eyes of the cruel and unwise
And they killed a man for his giro today

On the off chance that you're listening
To the radio
I thought you might like to know you broke my heart
You can only start to know or hedge your bets
And take a chance you never get again
All my ties, time and time
I keep on trying hard not to try too hard
When I forgive, I won't forget
To killing time, so I'm better now
I don't need it anymore
Anything that makes you, feel hate
Can do without hate
Now I believe in love

Now I have gone
Oh yeah, I will pay
For everything you've done
What was wrong
In the eyes of the unwell and unwise
They killed a man for his giro today

Its not a climb as that requires hands and feet - you are going on a trek.
