Event details

Climbing Mount Kinabalu for Lara's Foundation

On the 22nd and 23rd of February Lara’s Uncle Dave and his wife Ivy will be attempting an assault on Mount Kinabalu on the island of Borneo. The world's 20th most prominent mountain standing over 4000 metres above sea level. Climbing through 150 million year old rain forests they hope to complete the climb in two days acclimatizing at camp overnight at 3000 meters. The route down is via Ferrata meaning climbing down metal pinions hammered into the cliff face. Preparations are in full flow - Ivy is busy doing many squat thrusts and Dave has found his boots but his socks remain elusive. They ask for your support (and prayers) in aid of Lara’s Foundation.
