My Team

"My Martin's Mountain climb team are hugely important to me. They are a really varied bunch, comprised of friends, people who saved my life, and people who continue to help me rebuild it."

"Without my team I wouldn't be able to take on this mammoth challenge of climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro for the Spinal Injuries Association."

Mt. Kilimanjaro

The Rongai Route

My team and I will be taking the Rongai route up the mountain. It will take 5 days to to reach the summit and 7 days to complete the climb.

The Rongai route is the only route to ascend Kilimanjaro from the north-eastern side of the mountain, along the border between Tanzania and Kenya. This route retains a sense of unspoiled wilderness and offers a different perspective on Kilimanjaro by approaching it from the north.
