Final epic climb of the Seven Summits

 

 

Famed Filipino mountaineer, Romeo “Romi” Garduce, sets out to cap rare ‘Seven Summits’ feat.  In a few weeks, Garduce hopes to conquer the last of the “Seven Summits,” the collective reference to the highest mountains in the seven continents of the world.


Garduce’s “Seven Summits” odyssey kicked off in Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania, Africa, in September 2002.

More arduous climbs followed in Mt. Aconcagua in Argentina, South America (January 2005), Mt. Everest in Nepal, Asia (May 2006), Mt. Elbrus in Russia, Europe (August 2007), Mt. Mckinley or Denali Peak in Alaska, United States in North America (June 2008), and Australia’s Mt. Kosciuszko (December 2008) and Indonesia’s Mt. Carstensz Pyramid (July 2011) in the Australasia region.

The last on Garduce’s “Seven Summits” check list is Vinson Massif, the highest mountain—at 16,067 feet— in the ice-covered continent of Antarctica. Just like his Everest quest, Garduce’s potentially historic stunt has drawn television giant GMA 7 to document and dub his journey as “Pito Para sa Pilipino.”

Good luck Romi!
