Seven Summits

In school we learned: There are 5 continents. Olympia has 5 rings. In geography and science today we speak of 7 to even 9 continents.

So it is not surprising that even in the mountaineering scene, there is no consensus as to which are the seven peaks to climb if you want to climb the highest on every continent.

Reinhold Messner has made his choice. For his personal claim, his career, but also for our mutual edition.
