Content creator LordK tackles England’s tallest mountain and sets sights on Kilimanjaro to raise awareness for mental health.


Darren Claringbold, better known as LordK in the online world, is gearing up for his latest challenge. LordK is climbing England’s tallest mountain, Scafell Pike. But he’s not stopping there. LordK also plans to tackle Mount Helvellyn in the same weekend. A mountain he was unable to complete a few years ago due to his health.

Scafell Pike, The Lake District, EnglandStanding at an altitude of 978 meters above sea level. Scafell Pike is England’s tallest and most notable mountain situated in the Southern Fells and the Scafell massif. Scafell Pike’s summit is a remnant of the extinct Scafells volcano.


LordK is a content creator who has amassed a significant following across various social media platforms. With over 1.4 million followers on Tiktok and Facebook combined, LordK has established a strong presence in the social media world. He also has a considerable following on other apps such as Instagram and YouTube, where he shares facts and random thoughts.

LordK has been preparing for this challenge for months. He has been regularly training and shedding three stone in weight since his last attempt at Mount Helvellyn. He’s no stranger to mountain climbing either, having successfully completed a climb of Mount Snowden last year.

But what motivates LordK to keep pushing himself to the limits? It’s all part of his mission to climb Kilimanjaro in 2024, a challenge that holds a special place in his heart. LordK suffers from chronic pain in his back and neck, as well as arthritis and other medical conditions, including depression.

Despite these challenges, LordK is determined to raise awareness for mental health by completing this climb. He wants to show that mental illness should not stop anyone from achieving their dreams and living their life to the fullest. By setting his sights on Kilimanjaro, LordK hopes to inspire others to push themselves beyond their limits and overcome their own obstacles.
