The Atlas Mountains & the Kilimanjaro trek

    SPECIAL THANKYOU TO STU FROM MANIFESTO CLOTHING CO  IN PERTH FOR ALL THE SUPPORT ( http://www.designerclothing247.com/manifesto-perth.htm )

                                                           

I started climbing in May 2009,and in 5 months time I have managed to do 22 Munroe’s, which includes the six highest mountains in the UK. 

I like to push myself to the limit as I am so passionate about raising money to help others, especially for a charity which is close to my heart, CHAS.

CHAS is a children’s hospice which provides care, help and emotional support for children with life-limiting conditions; this also includes support for their families. 

I used to do a lot of adventurous things when I was younger and I decided I wanted to do something to help local children – and the local  hospice in Kinross is such a special place which helps not just the child but the whole family.. 

 I have raised money for CHAS in the past by playing 100 holes of golf in one day which I really enjoyed.

I am now going to attempt my hardest challenge yet – climbing the Toubkel (13671 feet)  in the Atlas

Mountains – which is the second highest mountain in Africa, on the 26th October 2009.  This will take me four days to complete, during this time I will be staying in the Berbers Villages or camping out in the wilderness away from civilisation.

Then on the 8th February 2010 will be the start of my journey up Mount Kilimanjaro (19340 feet). This is a nine day trek, which involves camping each day and will have extreme conditions.  This will be a once in a lifetime experience.

I want to let you know that every single penny I raise will go to CHAS.

I’m paying all the travel costs and equipment fees myself because I want the charity to benefit as much as possible,” .

Day 4:29.10.2009
Early in the morning we make our attempt on the summit of Jebel Toukbal, the highest peak in Northern Africa. Our route takes us up the south cirque, crossing the stream above the refuge. The walking is relatively straightforward, but the scree and the altitude will make the going quite difficult in parts. The views along the way make the journey more than worthwhile. When you reach the the summit you will see that the vistas across the surrounding landscape are quite breathtaking. From here there are unrestricted views in every direction, from the Marrakesh Plain to the High Atlas in the north and as far south as the Anti-Atlas and the Sahara. We will retrace our steps when we return down the mountain and head back to the Toubkal Refuge where we will spend the night.

Day 5: 30.10.2009
Today we walk back from the Toubkal Refuge to Imlil. After arrival in Imlil we will transfer back to Marrakech.
