Project 7in4


Steve’s Goal

On paper, Steve’s goal is simple.

Climb the 7 Summits, the Highest Mountain on each of the Seven Continents, in under 4 Months.


How hard can it be?

Well, Steve is under no illusion. Project 7in4 will not only be a strenuous physical challenge, it will also be an immense logistical challenge. And at the end of the day, success will not only be contingent on Steve’s mental toughness and ability to overcome the physical and logistical challenges, but will also be heavily reliant on luck, luck to get the right weather windows at the right times. And this is something which no amount of training, preparation or planning can influence. Although as the saying goes, “luck favours the prepared.”

Steve will attempt the 7 Summits in the following order, starting on Vinson, Antarctica in January 2018, and aiming to finish on Everest, Asia in May 2018.

  • Continent: Australasia
  • First Ascent: 1962, Heinrich Harrer
  • Did you know: During the early 1900’s the neighbouring peak of Ngga Pulu was higher than Carstensz Pyramid due to its large glacial capped summit extending above 4900m. Due to extensive snow melt, Ngga Pulu has reduced in height to 4862m, leaving Carstensz Pyramid the highest point.

6. Denali

Elevation
0m

  • Continent: North America
  • First Ascent: 1913, Walter Harper and Robert Tatum
  • Did you know: Dr. Frederick Cook claimed to have made the first ascent of Denali in 1906 but this was later proven false when a sketch revealed he was actually on a lower neighbouring peak. The first confirmed ascent was 7 years later in 1913.

7. Everest

Elevation
0m

  • Continent: Asia
  • First Ascent: 1953, Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay
  • Did you know: Mystery continues as to whether Hillary and Tenzing were the first to reach the summit of Everest, or if it was actually summited 30 years earlier by George Mallory and Andrew Irvine. Mallory and Irvine attempted Everest’s North side in 1924. They were last seen high on the mountain, still heading up. Mallory’s body has since been found, but it is still unknown whether they died on the ascent, or actually made the summit and died on the decent.
