DBSC Scales New Heights

Three DBSC members, Andrew Cox, James Tudball and Peter Speed, successfully summited Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, arriving at the top of the 5,895-metre peak at 7am on 11 January. The expedition involved 7 days of gruelling trekking and acclimatization over some 60km, before commencing the summit attempt at midnight, climbing 1.3 vertical kilometres over 7 hours on a dusting of fresh snow, to arrive both exhausted and exhilarated at the peak. The team was back down off the mountain in time to celebrate Andrew’s 50th birthday on 12 January. Watch out for some impressive sailing performances from the summit team, fresh with an overdose of red blood cells and toughened-up quads.
