    all being done Experience 35 approx lead climbs up to HVS 5a and countless seconds with Ross 1 week Alpine Experience 1 week Scottish Experience 2 Weeks Wales Experience Ten Tors 35 45 and 55 In my opinion Chris has come strengths and bounds in the short time that we ve been good friends Over all he s enthusiastic he likes to know everything about everything and he has shameless raw talent at his disposal in climbing if only he d slow down a bit He could go a long way especially if he consolidated his abilities rather than pushing the grade and having near miss falls I greatly value Chris on the team and when the chop comes down to it at the moment I can see him being in the first summit pair Chris s stamina and endurance are incomparable to anyone else on the team when it comes to walking and I just pray that his ability will remain ahead of the game at altitude and he can convert it to steep rock ice and rope work He s a pleasure to have on the team even if it s to be a butt of the jokes his sense of humour will boost moral and his cooking abilities will undoubtedly go untold distances RC Mykl White Lead Climber and equipment technician 20 I have always had a love for the outdoors growing up on a farm near Weymouth I got into walking by my competitive attitude with my Brother Adrian As he did Ten tors the year before then so I had to do it as well From then my love of the outdoors has escalated I have completed the ten tors 45 miles twice and 55 miles once I started climbing about three years ago I have not done a lot of mountaineering All together I have done about 23 mountain days summer and winter I climb for my own enjoyment rather than bickering over grades and whether it s a 6b or a 6b but I do enjoy getting brown trousers What can I give to the team Well I guess my walking braking trail etc but I do knot know how well I will do at altitude I am also technically a good climber But will I need that Experience Several weeks in Wales Scottish Winter 1 week Ten Tors 45 twice and 55 once Numerous sport climbs and trad up to VS 5a Myk was introduced to me as a friend of a friend when he started at Bicton Our common ground of climbing has brought our friendship together and we ve had many a happy day out on the mountains Myk and Chris go together naturally on the mountain with similar stamina and speed and experience and that bond will work well in their favour Myk although a leader of lower trad grades than myself and with a known lack of upper body strength for overhangs he is supremely better then me

    peeved at having not made the summit this being due more to the fact that I know we could have done it with just one extra day a bit more financial backing and a lot less bureaucracy than any other reason I can now appreciate the goals we did really achieve All of the values aims and objectives that I had conceived along with Derek Groves some 18 months ago in our promotional booklet have been carried out which itself is an achievement Although due to the financial and time constraints and bureaucracy I did not quite reach the summit of Mt Kilimanjaro I not only created a world first by getting higher on a mountain in a wheelchair than anyone has been before some 16 000 ft but we also achieved the following Awareness of what people with disabilities can achieve even more so of peoples abilities not disabilities This was achieved not only through world wide BBC Television Radio but also widespread press articles and full time coverage given on the bluedome internet site It will be followed by a video already accepted for an international symposium being held in Spain next year and a book We have just been told that the BBC is considering doing a longer feature on the expedition Through cultural exchange within the host country we supplied our coaching and educational expertise and ëgiftedí educational and sporting equipment to areas of greatest need after which we have now taken on three projects that we hope to help with further resources These are the street kids project the School for the Blind and the K C M C hospital Their needs are basic and would make good use of materials that are possibly discarded over here due to advancement of technology etc We would

    of Great Gable On that particular venture Derek and a team of his work colleagues from Hull Prison helped Jon Amos an international wheelchair athlete to reach the summit of 2949 ft Great Gable Mountain in the Lake District and in doing so raised not only some 4000 for charity but also an awareness of the limitless goals which can be achieved by people with a disability this was endorsed afterwards with articles in not only the local press but two National Magazines and with video footage shown on Television To the Top of Great Gable was planned and completed in just three months yet still a good level of publicity and funds were raised whereas project 98 The Roof of Africa will take most of 1997 to finalise and should hopefully supersede all aspects of our previous adventure Aims and Values For us Kilimanjaro will now become the Challenge of Endeavour to heighten awareness of disability sports and the celebrating of 50 years of wheelchair sports This was first started by Dr Ludwig Guttman at stoke Mandeville hospital and continues through the dedicated efforts of the British Wheelchair Sports Foundation with a unique enterprise to achieve personal and collective
