"The Seven Summits – Mountains We’ve climbed:
Africa- Kilimanjaro – July 22, 2006
Australia- Kosciuszko – April, 2007
Europe/Russia- Elbrus – July 11, 2007
South America- Aconcagua – December 30, 2007
North America- Denali – June 18, 2008
Oceana- Carstensz Pyramid – September 1, 2009"
He didn't learn climbing on Everest. Kosciuszko sure isn't hard, and Kilimanjaro is a touristgoal (for the fit ones). Step by step.
He still hasn't climbed Vinson Massif in Antarctica from what I understand. Not that I'm following it all that closely, but it is at least moderately interesting. There are 8 seven summits if you include the two Oceana entries.
Where is Vinson, surely neither the Messner or Bass lists.. but then tell that to the media or commercial enterprises that see the money in this marketing opportunity..
And especially when Tiger Woods is not performing, surely the adoring US people need a new hero!
