But we just got word from the logistics operator that the trips are filling up fast as there is limited capacity, so please let us know immediately if you want to come and pay a deposit to reserve your place.


Every company has to use the same logistics partner, so the trips are all the same, only the price is different. 7summits has the lowest price as always, check it out here: Vinson 2004/2005.

Really, be quick if you want to come along!




This might be interesting for all climbers and hikers who want to stock up on good but cheap gear: the yearly REI sale!

The following was sent in the last newsletter as well, but for the new subscribers: here are the recent site updates, New Kilimanjaro and Aconcagua trips!




New additions to the site!

+ Of course we have updated the 7summits statistics, check them out here.


+Many new pictures: check out Fred Triep's Kilimanjaro pictures, Tim Hirst's Aconcagua tripreport and pictures, Rob Milnes new Vinson pictures and Carstensz pix by Rob & myself. Send them as ecards, or register and add your own!


+ Yet another new forum! We upgraded again, loads of new features, sign up and check them out. We also added a new summitlog board, so if you have climbed one of the 7summits, let the world know here!


+On top of many pages you will now see Google ads. This means the ads are based on the content of the page and therefore interesting for the site visitor. Now you can check out our advertising competition, while keeping our prices low!


+Also there have been reports of members who have seen flying... yaks on the forum! You have to sign up to see them, but if you catch them they might reward you with altitude points. Unless it is an evil yak of course...  




Kilimanjaro trips for 2004: same price, new route: Rongai!

+ Remember there are plenty of other affordable expeditions available:  

Kilimanjaro: we have kept all our 2004 prices the same as 2002 and 2003! Book a 7summits.com Kili and safari trip and enjoy the summit of Africa for a great price; all trips are fully customizable. 


For Euro countries the trips have become about 20% cheaper, so enjoy the low US dollar while it lasts and book a fully serviced 7day (on the mountain, 9 days in total) Kili expedition from 790 €uro!


+ We already organized some trips, but now officially: we added the Rongai Route a route as 'easy' as the normal route, but without the huts and much more quiet and from the north side, spending time at Mawenzi peak before heading up to the summit. You might even see elephants on the way! Check out all prices and details on the trips page.





New Aconcagua dates and prices online

+Our 2004/2005 Aconcagua trips are online now. The prices are the same as last year! Still thousands $$ less than the big US guys! We offer trips from December-January. Remember: even if only one person signs up we will go! But most trips already have participants signed up for them, so do not miss your chance to climb to the summit of South America


+ We have added a new route due to popular demand: Aconcagua from all sides! 

This means you go up the beautiful Vacas valley, climb the Polish traverse route and descent the faster Normal route, so you get the best of all routes and see all sides of Aconcagua using non-technical routes! Only 2 dates this season, so book it before it's gone 



+ Also this year we offer climbs up the Polish Glacier itself. Private trips only as this is a technical climb.

+ Another new addition to our trips is the option to climb 6000m Cerro Plata in 6 days as an acclimatization for Aconcagua. A very nice climb for only $480 and no park fees!

+ All trips can now be booked using the online bookingform

Looking forward to seeing you on the new site, remember you can post on the forum and upload your pictures and send them as ecards at the images gallery!,
