Ruairidh conquers Kilimanjaro!

Kilimanjaro Summit

Ruairidh McLaughlin, our Sales Engineer from SIA in Glasgow has recently returned from an amazing adventure in Kenya where he trekked to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro!

The hike on the way up took four days going through the Marangu route which is the quickest to the summit.  Ruairidh told us “The hardest part was without a doubt the altitude, once we hit over 4,000m I began to feel really sick and started to hallucinate. This was mentally one of the toughest things I have ever done although I was determined to get to the top!”

Although there were ten in the group that he started in only eight of them finished, showing just how hard a task it was to complete.

“It was my ambition to get to the top as whatever cost. It was such a great feeling when I finally got there, standing at the highest point in Africa was a dream come true”

Thanks for sharing your story Ruairidh! We look forward to seeing what your next adventure will be!
