Teams of 12 has 24 hours to climb the equivalent of height of Mt. Everest from sea level to 8848m on the University of Pretoria climbing wall. In the past teams only had to climb the equivalent elevation gain in going from Everest Base camp to the summit but this year Explo is not whimping out and teams now need to go the full height. This means that each team member will have to climb around 30 to 40 sport pitches on a perfectly vertical wall!
