A group of former Welsh national rugby captains is set to take on the challenge of climbing Africa's highest peak.
The likes of Ieuan Evans, Rob Howley and Colin Charvis are setting off to climb Kilimanjaro which stands at 19,340 ft, braving the challenges of cold, fatigue and altitude along the way.
Velindre Cancer Centre is set to be the beneficiary of the charity challenge, for which the group will try to raise £1 million.
As well as men's outdoor clothing
, walking boots
and trekking poles, the group may benefit from having four-season sleeping bags
as they spend the nights in tents
in sub-zero temperatures as they climb up the glacier-topped dormant volcano.
Those attempting Kilimanjaro have a number of ways up to choose from, including the Marangu, Rongai and Lemosho routes.
The latter was the chosen path for the Comic Relief charity group last year, when a team of celebrities led by musician Gary Barlow made it to the summit.
