We have accumulated a variety of necessary mountain equipment since the Seven Summits project began in 2007. Much of the gear has been upgraded over the years as we progressed from smaller peaks to larger and more extreme expeditions. The current Seven Summits equipment list consists of the following items with a total value of €11,000.00 per person (2015 economics).
