Seven Summit Challenge Taken to a New Level

The seven summits challenge has enticed climbers since Dick Bass was the first to complete it in 1985. Climbing the seven tallest mountains on each of the seven continents has been infamously named the seven summits challenge. Now, three people are planning on taking that challenge to the next level.

Pierre Carter, Marianne Schwankhart and Peter Friedmann plan to not only summit all of the seven summits but also hang glide down from the summits. The trio plans to raise funds for both The Trust and The Smile Foundation while on the expeditions.

As they climb, summit and hang glide down during the expeditions their actions will be photographed and filmed for future documentaries.
