THE SEVENTY SUMMITS
Come explore the Seven Summits (highest point on each continent), with world-renowned mountain guide, Vernon Tejas. Among many other ground-breaking feats, Vern is the only person to guide the Seven Summits at least ten times each.
The Seven Summits are an epic mountaineering adventure of challenge, perseverance, and excitement. Climbing them typically takes several years to complete and is a feat that relatively few have attempted and even fewer succeeded - only several hundred to date. The Seven Summits are a lofty but obtainable goal and the ultimate dream of many mountaineers. Scaling the highest points on each continent is more than accomplishing a checklist of mountains; the Seven Summits is the adventure of a lifetime! Excerpt from RMI Guides
