The Seven Summits

The Seven Summits as a goal was first completed by Dick Bass in 1985 with Mt. Kosciuszko as his consideration for the for the highest peak in Australia. A year later the famous mountaineer Reinhold Messner also completed the Seven Summits with his addition of Carstensz. The Reinhold list is what most now consider to be the true Seven Summits.

We've Done this Before

Todd Passey, owner and lead guide of ITCOG has twice guided all the Seven Summits. Some of these peaks; like Denali and Mt. Vinson he has guided more than twenty times. Needless to say we know the circuit well.
