How it works…
We’ve tried to make as much information as possible available on this website, but sometimes it can be nice to have a simple overview of how a typical climb works.
We hope you find this information helpful but remember; if you want to climb, we want to help. So if you have any questions whatsoever, please contact us and we’ll make it our mission to help.
Young or old - as long as you are in reasonable shape, climbing the mountain is within your grasp.
You do need time to prepare so that at the time of your climb you have a good level of fitness to successfully and safely reach the summit and get the most from your “once in a lifetime” experience.This climb is for anyone
Raising money for charity will motivate you

You can fundraise, or go climb-only
You can of course pay for the challenge yourself, but most people fundraise to cover their costs and raise money for a good cause. It may sound like a lot to raise but if you do it over time and do it with our help and support it is very achievable. We shall help and encourage you along the way.
The climbing fee includes a contribution towards the costs of running The Nasio Trust – a charity that provides education, healthcare and support to orphaned and vulnerable children in a very poor rural area in western Kenya. Our aim is to help the people of these poor communities to break the cycle of poverty that wrecks lives.Funding Options
