It’s Africa’s highest peak, standing 19,341 ft tall.
However, there are bigger obstacles in life than Mount Kilimanjaro and that is why Perth duo Alex McClintock, 44, and 54-year-old Adam Allison, are climbing it in October.
The pair run Andy’s Man Club, a suicide prevention group catering for men suffering from mental health issues.
Set up in England in remembrance of Andy Roberts, who took his own life, by brother-in-law Luke Ambler, the group provides a network of support.
Since starting up in the Fair City last year, it has grown remarkably.
No one turned up at its first meeting, but 25 were at its latest.
It meets every Monday night in the Muirton Suite at St Johnstone’s McDiarmid Park at 6.30pm and the support has been of great benefit to many.
The Kilimanjaro climb will be an arduous task, even for two very fit men such as Alex and Adam, who are both physical education instructors.
Alex said: “The climb will raise awareness of the club and will help to challenge the stigma of mental health.
“Adam and I are the only Scots going but there are seven others from Andy’s Man Clubs in England.
“We are doing this in October which is mental health awareness month.”
The pair need £7,000 to make the trip and they’ve met the target already through successful fundraising.
A sportsman’s dinner in Letham Community Club, with Arbroath FC manager Dick Campbell as one of the speakers, added even more to the coffers.
The club was the first of its kind in Scotland and Alex, Adam and the other members are doing their utmost to keep its name to the fore.
Alex said: “There is a stigma about big boys not crying but it takes a big man to show emotion and we want to encourage that.
“We have guys in tears with others supporting them at meetings and then, the next thing, everyone is falling about laughing.
“The club has helped so many guys and it is our aim to keep on doing so.
“We would like to see Andy’s Man Clubs in every town and city.
“Hopefully, the Kilimanjaro climb will bring the work of the club to the attention of more people.”
