Reach the summit of Kilimanjaro, Africa's highest point, on foot. As well as the physical challenge, altitude is a major factor (5,895m at Uhuru Peak, Kibo), as is the temperature range (27C at the bottom to -27C at the top!). Complete this massive challenge and stand at the top of an entire continent!

David F Climb Kilimanjaro Challenge

Contributorgold David F This challenge has been sitting in my list for quite some time now. I completed the climb on the 8th October with no problems. However, it was very much a challenge on summit night. Such an amazing, emotional and rewarding experience. Very proud of this achievement.
