7 summits challenge
The "Seven Summits" is the name given to highest points of the seven continents of the world. Five of the seven peaks on the list are unambiguous: Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro and Vinson. Consensus today is very clearly behind Elbrus and Carstensz as the other two members of this exclusive club, there is some disagreement as to what constitutes the highest points of Europe and the Australia/Oceania continent. Whilst lower than Carstenz Pyramid in West Papua, Mt Kosciuszko is still on the traditional 7 summits list for most mountaineers as the highest point of Australia. Over 100 climbers have now done the Seven Summits, and these days it has become a popular quest.
