Global Challenges

The seven summits challenge has captured the imagination of many, it has given a focus to mountaineers worldwide, to climb the highest peak on each of the seven continents. Anyone can start the challenge on the easier non-technical peaks of Kilimanjaro, Elbrus and Aconcagua whilst developing the resilience and skills to tackle the cold peaks of Mt Vinson on Antarctica and Denali (Mt. McKinley) in North America. The final two include Carstensz Pyramid, a technical rock summit on the island of Papua and finally the ultimate prize Everest, the summit of Asia and the highest point in the world.
