In response to the recent press about the possibility of a cableway being built on Mt Kilimanjaro, I was recently interviewed by Pippa Hudson on CapeTalk/Radio702. Her questions focused on the basics of altitude illness, and some reflection on what the medical risks of a cableway would entail. You can read the MCSA/UIAA statement on the proposed cableway here.
You can listen to the radio interview below, or if that fails at one of the links.
