Top of the African continent

This video is nearly ten years old but it thrilled me.

It shows the 2006 TrailRider ascent of Kilimanjaro by a team of enthusiastic Canadians, many Tanzanian porters and Brock, the rider. It is 20 minutes of fascination.

I came by this video when I was contacted, out of the blue, by Jordan Kerton. You will meet her in the video and you will hear more when she writes a guest post.



  1. We have so often said in jest...."Next it will be Mt Kilimanjaro" - but seeing here what it took, I'm glad Boronia Peak and Mt Bishop were our great triumphs instead. xx

    1. It has become a ripe chestnut of a joke. I must learn though to add that the heat and my toilet needs would count me out.

      Boronia and Bishop were extraordinary. Thank you
