The Seven Summits Challenge
The Seven Summits was first completed by American Dick Bass in 1985.
The mountains involved are as follows:
Two Seven Summits lists exist (Bass & Morrow lists). Both lists are separated by opinions on definition of the ‘Continent’. The Morrow list excludes Kosciuszko in favour of Carstensz Pyramid in Papua New Guinea. The Morrow list was first completed by Patrick Morrow in 1986. The Irish Seven Summits duo of Paul Devaney and Niall O’Byrnes have been attempting the ‘Bass’ list since 2007.
Less than 300 people in the world have ever completed the Seven Summits challenge. The world record for the fastest Seven Summits was briefly held by Irishman Ian McKeever in 2009 at 156 days.
