The Seven Summits Challenge

The Seven Summits includes the highest peak on each of the 7 continents and was first completed by American Dick Bass in 1985. There are different opinions on continental definition and at least two 7 summits lists exist. The challenge we are undertaking includes the following mountains:

  1. Everest (Asia)
  2. Aconcagua (South America)
  3. Denali (North America)
  4. Kilimanjaro (Africa)
  5. Vinson Massif (Antarctica)
  6. Elbrus (Europe)
  7. Kosciuszko (Australia)

Less than 300 people in the world have ever completed the Seven Summits challenge. We have used this unique adventure opportunity to raise $43,744 for worthwhile charities since 2007 so thank you to all who have donated.

Everest 2015 Update

Irish Seven Summits climber Paul Devaney from Longford was climbing Everest in April 2015 when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. It triggered an avalanche from Pumori which led to a shock wave ripping through Base Camp destroying camps & killing 19 people.

Paul was at base camp when the earthquake and avalanche hit and was fortunate to have escaped unharmed due mostly to the random luck of the camp location.

Read more about Paul’s earthquake experiences during Everest 2015.
