Climbing the Seven Summits remains an elusive yet obtainable goal. From a technical standpoint, each climb offers unique challenges.
Mount Kilimanjaro and Mount Elbrus represent the least technical climbs of the spectrum, and are therefore great places to embark on this odyssey. Kilimanjaro is a porter-supported climb, traveling up non-glaciated slopes on a well-established trail. Elbrus then provides a non-technical, one day glacier climb that requires use of an ice axe, crampons, and ropes. Aconcagua is the highest mountain in the Western Hemisphere at an impressive 6,963m, and our most popular mountaineering destination. Denali (Mount McKinley) requires specific skills and training and we are delighted to plan the necessary courses to achieve this goal with anyone aspiring to climb this impressive and tough mountain. The Carstensz Pyramid is a relatively unvisited and remote climb, offering a truly unique journey from dense low jungle to high technical rock, snow and ice, as well as extraordinary cultural exchange with remote native tribes of Papua New Guinea. Mount Vinson offers a major challenge due to the harshness of its climate and its extremely remote location. But for most mountaineers pursuing to climb the Seven Summits, however, Everest is the ultimate achievement – obtained only after years of trials and tribulations on lesser peaks.
