And when they think the summit will never come and the night will never end... It Does!
The summit attempt is gruelling and as you go up, you use all your will and might to get there. Once you have finally made it, it's exhilarating. The views are truly awesome!
You only have a few minutes to admire the beauty and your achievement before heading back down.
From here you still have the longest and most testing day ahead of you. The rest of the day will look a little something like this: Day Six
Good Luck To All The Climbers!
To all their supporters, if you haven't yet - you still have time to help them reach their main goal which is supporting Red Nose Day. They have today already raised £1, 274, 267 for charity which is a phenomenal effort! Congrats to all and let's hope each one of them gets to stand on the Roof of Africa!

Isn't it always the case - you do something BIG and then it seems just about everyone else is doing it too!
But when it's for charity it would be great if everyone could chip in. Either by doing the challenge yourself or by sponsoring those brave enough to attempt it.
So a number British celebs have joined forces and have taken on the challenge of Climbing Kili.
Included in the list of famous names are Radio One DJ Chris Moyles, Boyzone's Ronan Keating, pop star Alesha Dixon, and GMTV host Ben Shephard, 34.
The effort is to raise money for Comic Relief. They hope to raise £1m - some of which will be used to fight malaria and providing refuge for those in need, in Tanzania.
According to the Telegraph the group left at 6am local time, yesterday.
When we started our trip, we only managed to leave at 1pm with all the delays we faced. So we ended up walking in the heat of the late afternoon. I guess at least the celebs managed to start off with slightly cooler conditions. Although it seems that it was still a little to hot for Take That singer, Gary Barlow, who "collapsed in a heap" on his first day.
To get an idea of that they have in store for day 2, take a look at this link:
