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.
