Settings Records on Kilimanjaro
|First Bearded Hippy Riding a Unicycle Up Kilimanjaro|
Given that it’s easy to climb and relatively safe, Mt. Kilimanjaro is known as a mountain to set a new record – and garner some quick fame as “being the first” person to either 1)
climb the mountain in a certain way 2)
or to be a type-of-person that has NEVER
climbed the mountain.
In the last few years, there have been a new record – every few months – of a trekker trying to “become the first” person that climbed Kilimanjaro. To be honest, it’s getting to the point where it’s a bit ridiculous.
Let’s see, this year we had the following:
1. We had the youngest person climbing Kilimanjaro.
2.We had the first HIV positive person to summit Kilimanjaro. Read HIVman attempts record climb. I would like to dispute this as many people with HIV have climbed to the top of Kilimanjaro. They just haven’t documented it.
3. We had the first person to “run to the top” of Kilimanjaro this last year. I don’t dispute this record because personally to run to the top of Kilimanjaro is like going deep sea scuba diving without any gear. This guy who ran to the top of Kilimanjaro, also might win the record for having lost the most brain cells or having the longest headache after climbing Kilimanjaro.
If there are any midgets, cavemen, or albinos that like mountain climbing, I suggest you head to Kilimanjaro. You could be the first.
