The Elbrus Expedition 2016 kicks off the challenge to climb the world’s highest mountain on each continent. I will attempt to climb all the 7 summits within the next 5 years as part of this amazing challenge.
The Seven Summits are the highest mountains of each of the seven continents. Summiting all of them is regarded as a mountaineering challenge, first achieved on April 30, 1985 by Richard Bass.
As just over 300 people have reached the Seven Summits it remains an elusive, though obtainable goal. From a technical standpoint each climb offers its own, unique challenges.
