Description

The Seven Summits are composed of each of the highest mountain peaks of each of the seven continents. Different lists include slight variations, but generally the same core is maintained. The seven summits depend on the definition used for a continent โ€“ in particular the location of the border of that continent. This results in two points of variation: the first is Mont Blanc versus Mount Elbrus for the continent of Europe; and the second depends on whether one includes all of Oceania or only mainland Australia as the continent, which results in either Puncak Jaya (also known as “Carstensz Pyramid”) or Mount Kosciuszko, respectively. This also gives rise to another list called “Eight Summits” including both Puncak Jaya and Mount Kosciuszko and the rest of the six summits in the other continents.

This creates several possible versions of the seven summits:

Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Vinson, Elbrus, Puncak Jayaย – Carstensz Pyramidย (the Messner version)
Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Vinson, Elbrus, Kosciuszko (the Bass version)
Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Vinson, Mont Blanc, Kosciuszko (the 1950s explorer Hackett version)
Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Vinson, Mont Blanc, Puncak Jaya
Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Vinson, Mont Blanc, Mount Wilhelm (Wilhelm version)
The concept Richard Bass and his climbing partner Frank Wells were pursuing was to be the first to stand atop the highest mountain on each continent. They pursued this goal as they defined it, climbing Aconcagua for South America, McKinley (now Denali) for North America, Kilimanjaro for Africa, Elbrus for Europe, Vinson for Antarctica, Kosciuszko for Australia, and finally Everest for Asia.

    Bought it as a gift for a climbing crazy friend. It was very much appreciated. Thanks for a great present and concept ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ˜Š

    As a long time climber I had high expectations. That being said the quality alone are worth the price and the poster is likely an interesting piece if you are looking to impress on your guests or just use it as a conversation starter.
