Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Vinson, Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Vinson, Mont Blanc, Puncak Jaya. The 7 Summits consists of climbing to the highest point on each of the seven continents:-. Europe - Mt Elbrus- 5642m 6. Elbrus in Russia is probably the obvious follow-on from Kilimanjaro, lower at just over 18,000' but significantly colder. Elbrus offers an introduction to basic alpine skills like walking on crampons and using a walking axe correctly, and moving on a man rope if necessary. Like the number one list, the number two and three lists is subject to the Bass vs. Messner geophysical/political dichotomy. Putting tents up, keeping well fed and hydrated and well slept is difficult on a high cold mountain, and the second camp called Nido de Condores is at 5500 metres which is the same as Everest Base Camp. Are you referring to lung and cardio alone? This makes a lot of sense to me.  Mary "Dolly" Lefever became the first American woman to climb the "Seven Summits" on March 11, 1993, when she climbed Australia's Mount Kosciuszko. by ghileman » Mon Nov 02, 2009 8:11 am 5 Replies 3594 Views Last post by jdmorris Fri Nov 06, 2009 7:19 pm Advice on my gear? Your name and email will not be shared. (It is assumed that most of the mountaineers who have completed the Seven Summits would have climbed Mont Blanc as well.) In terms of Australia as a country, Mawson Peak (2,745 m (9,006 ft)) is higher than Kosciuszko; however, it is not located in Oceania, but on Heard island, a small island territory in the southern Indian Ocean. Climbing Carstensz Pyramid has the character of an expedition, whereas the ascent of Kosciuszko is an easy hike. It’s why I don’t understand how anyone can objectively claim that climbing Everest is harder than Denali, unless documenting exact oxygen use and blood saturation timelines. But I don't know about comparing oxygen as you're asking. It has also been suggested that for an even more difficult mountaineering challenge one could climb the second highest mountain on each of the continents as this would include more technical ascents such as K2. ", Bill Allen, who completed the Seven Summits twice, said that getting to the summit never gets old. Denali, the highest in North America is a big serious expedition in a remote, cold and unforgiving corner of Alaska. Finally in 1986, he climbed Mount Vinson. For Denali, they recommend a TSS of 75 for two months, and for Aconcagua I think they've guesstimated a level of around 60 before climbing, https://www.uphillathlete.com/fit-to-climb-everest/, Also, because Denali is so high off of the equator, 20k ft there is like 24k ft in the Himalayas. Hiking up the Horcones Valley can be a very hot experience, while night temperatures at the high camps are regularly well below freezing. Colin O'Brady broke the record for the Messner and Bass lists in 131 days, summiting Vinson on 17 January 2016 and completing with Denali on 27 May 2016. Beginning in 1983, Bass and Wells made various guided attempts to climb Mount Everest, the highest and most difficult peak in the list. In 2009-10, Indian mountaineer Krushnaa Patil made a bid for the fastest woman to complete the challenge; she fell short of the challenge when, in May 2009, her seventh and final summit bid on Denali was halted by her guide's illness. , In October 2006, Kit Deslauriers became the first person to have skied down (parts of) all seven peaks (Bass list). Kristiansen completed the summits in the following order: Vinson on Jan 21, Aconcagua on Feb 6, Kosciuszko on Feb 13, Kilimanjaro on Mar 1, Carstensz Pyramid on Mar 14, Elbrus on May 8, Everest on May 25, spending just 22 days on the mountain (normally, expeditions take up to two months acclimatizing, laying ropes, etc.) That said, I've personally found climbing into the high 27,000's on 1 lpm to be easier than Denali without supplemental oxygen. I once was tent bound here for a full seven days in a storm ,which is actually quite a common occurrence.  Puncak Jaya is actually on the Maoke Plate, which is usually grouped with the larger Australian plate. I've spoken to a number (3) people who have climbed all 7 summits.  Three months later, in January 2007, Swedes Olof Sundström and Martin Letzter completed their Seven Summits skiing project by skiing down (parts of) Carstensz Pyramid, thus becoming the first and only people to have skied both lists.. It's not technically too difficult, but woe betide if you leave your gloves behind. , Alpinism author Jon Krakauer (1997) wrote in Into Thin Air that it would be a bigger challenge to climb the second-highest peak of each continent, known as the Seven Second Summits – a feat that was not accomplished until January 2013. Hackett made an attempt to climb Mt. for Elbrus, Aconcagua, Denali by RG90 » Tue Jan 05, 2016 1:11 pm 6 Replies 4073 Views , Set of highest mountains of each of the seven continents, Impact and related climbing list concepts, A higher elevation of 5,030 m (16,503 ft) still appears on some maps and sites, but is accepted by neither Indonesia nor the mountaineering community, nor is it supported by modern surveys. , On 6 January 2018, Chris Bombardier reached the summit of Mount Vinson, becoming the first person with hemophilia to complete the Seven Summits (Messner list). It's seems pretty common that Denali is the hardest to climb, but only due to regulations about carrying all of your own gear. For many people Kilimanjaro is the first rung on a ladder that could feasibly end up on top of Everest itself.

Never been to Denali but Everest is mentally harder than Aconcagua. It is also a very physical expedition with carries to camps to be made and a longer period spent acclimatising, although you can hire porters. Even then it would be hard. It is important to be very conversant with camping for this trip, there is a far higher level of self-preservation needed. A climb of Kilimanjaro will take you, in a period of around seven days and 30 miles, from equatorial forest to glaciated summit, from one extreme of weather to the other, to the approximate altitude of Camp 1 on Mount Everest. Ed Viesturs also summitted all peaks without supplemental oxygen. Depends on the amount of oxygen used!  On 21 November 2013, Werner Berger (Canada, ex-South African), at the age of 76 years and 129 days, became the oldest person in the world to complete the Seven Summits after a 6-day jungle trek to Carstensz Pyramid. It also depends on when and how much O2 you use and how fast you get off of the mountain. I have been fortunate to do it six times and three times without bottled oxygen or Sherpa support but I faced unforeseen challenges just a few hundred metres from the top five times before finally getting to the top.It's a nine week trip and there is the choice of South or North side, with our without Sherpa support, and with or without oxygen.
