Oldest Man to have climbed Kili
An eighty-two-year-old Buckinghamshire man has become the oldest person in the world to climb Mount Kilimanjaro.
George Solt from Olney climbed a total of 5,895 metres in memory of his wife, Jen.
The money raised from the climb up Africa's highest peak will go to Willen Hospice where Jen spent her final days.
Since his expedition, George has been nominated for an award by Hugh Hefner, founder of Playboy magazine.
