The Seven Summits Challenge

The Seven Summits was first completed by American Dick Bass in 1985.

The challenge involves climbing the following mountains:

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

Two Seven Summits lists exist (Bass & Morrow lists). Both lists are separated by opinions on the definition of continental Australia. 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 team 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. We have used this unique adventure opportunity to raise €35,000 for worthwhile charities since 2007 so thank you to all who have generously donated.
