The Seven Summits Challenge

Our Seven Summits challenge involves climbing the highest peaks on all 7 continents. We do this for fun and to hopefully inspire others to wander into the hills and see the world a little differently from its highest vantage points. 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. While we do this for fun, we have also used this unique adventure opportunity to raise funds for worthwhile causes since 2007, so thank you to all who have donated.

Everest Disaster(s)

Irish Seven Summits climber Paul Devaney was on Everest in April 2015 when a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal and triggered an avalanche from Pumori which ripped through Everest Base Camp destroying camps and killing 19 people. Paul was sat just metres away from the path of the avalanche and was fortunate to have escaped unharmed due mostly to the random luck of the camp location.

This was his 2nd year on Everest, with disasters occurring in both years as he attempted to complete the last peak of the Seven Summits.

Listen to Paul’s recount of those dramatic experiences as well as his journey to climb the Seven Summits in this new radio documentary.
