The Seven Summits are the highest mountains of each of the seven continents.
Climbing to the summit of all of them is regarded as a mountaineering challenge. It was first achieved on 30 April 1985 by Richard Bass. As of 2016 just over 400 people had completed the challenge.

We break the Seven Summits into 3 manageable groups.
The “next 2” require a much higher level in terms of technicality and physicality. With the “first 3” under your belt you should now have a clear aim as to how to approach an expedition.
We offer the “next 2”, Denali and Carstenz Pyramid as a package and they can both be done within 1 year.
Denali – June / July
Carstenz Pyramid – October
Denali is a big step up from the “first 3” that you summitted and as we have been working together for a year we make sure you are fully ready for the North American giant. Carstenz Pyramid reinforces the rope work we have been practising all along and is a logistical puzzle that you will be glad to have someone organising for you.
With these 2 in the bag, you are staring at the prize and only 2 left. However we’ve been prepping you and talking about what to expect all along.
If you do not have the time or funds to book them together you can approach them separately.
The cost of Denali and Carstenz Pyramid booked together is $ 26 150 USD
This does not include international flights that we can advise on.
*We also offer bespoke packages such as 1:1 executive guiding and coaching, speed records, 5 in a year, even all 7 in a year, non standard routes to the summit.
