His name had already been mentioned, but now it is official:

Christopher Harris will be part of our 7summits.com/7summit-club.com Everest 2006 expedition. He is only 15 years old and wants to be the youngest 7 summiteer! He will be joined by 2 very experienced climbing cameramen who will be filming. This is the official pressrelease as sent out by his father Richard Harris, who will be joining as well.

Breaking News

We are pleased to announce that Christopher Harris will be attempting to climb to the summit of Mt Everest this May.

Christopher will be accompanied by his father, Richard Harris, himself an experienced mountaineer; Lincoln Hall OAM (Everest veteran and one of Australia’s most renowned climbers); and Michael Dillon AM (award-winning Australian adventurer/cinematographer).

His attempt is being made possible through the support of principal sponsor, Bradley Trevor Greive, Major sponsors, Dick Smith Foods, Mountain Design’s and Australian Geographic.


Christopher’s attempt on Everest will cap a remarkable climbing career that has already seen him successfully tackle some of the world’s highest and most challenging peaks.

His goal is to become the youngest climber to capture mountaineering’s ‘holy grail’, known as The Seven Summits – scaling the highest peaks on each of the seven continents.

To date, he has achieved four of the seven – Australia’s highest mountain, Mt Kosciuszko (at age 8); Mt Kilimanjaro in Africa (age 12); Mt Elbrus in Europe (age 13); and, in January this year at age 15, Mt Aconcagua, South America’s highest mountain and the highest peak outside of the Himalayas.

When Edmund Hillary took those last few steps to the summit of Everest in 1953, he made history. Most of us can only ever read about such historical events and dream of what it must have been like to be there, to have been involved.

Now comes an exciting opportunity to be personally involved in the making of history and to follow the event using the latest technology.
