The Quest for the Seven Summits »
The quest of climbing the highest mountain on the seven continents is a challenging, but also an extraordinary journey. It lets us experience all types of climates, technical levels of mountaineering, environments and different cultures. It is an inspiring goal for those who are determined to apprentice and master this high altitude adventure pursuit and invest time and energy in some of the most beautiful and remote corners of the world.
I have successfully climbed six of the Seven Summits: Kilimanjaro, Elbrus, McKinley/Denali, Aconcagua, Vinson and Kosciuszko. In May 2011, I have climbed up to 8,600m/28,380ft on the North side of Mount Everest, only 250m/825ft short of the summit.
