Volcanic 7 Summits
« on: Jan 6 2008, 14:09 »

For those who wants an alternative to the standard 7 summits, how about attempting the volcanic 7 summits?

South America: Ojos del Salado
Africa: Kilimanjaro
Asia: Damavand
Europe: Elbrus
North America: Pico de Orizaba
Oceania: Giluwe
Antarctica: Sidley

Just a thought  ;D

South American: Aconcagua                                South American: Aconcagua
Eurasian: Everest                                               Eurasian: Everest
African: Kilimanjaro                                            African: Kilimanjaro
Antarctic: Vinson                                                Antarctic: Vinson                     
Pacific: Mauna Kea                                             Pacific: Mauna Kea
Australian: Carstensz Pyramid                             Indo-Australian: Kangchenjunga or K2 (?)                                             

MC  8)

Nah, Volcanic summits are for wusses unless they are active  ;D
Ojos de Salados is very nice by the way, but where is Giluwe?

I think Mauna Kea is a bit overhyped, counting is from the seabottom. I am sure there is a way to go from the bottom of the Mariana Trench, towards Asia (the above water part) and straight up Mt Everest, making a claim that Everest is about 20kms high  :P

Anyway, anything that makes you get out of your chair, active and see and meet different cultures and nature is great!

I was measuring Mauna Kea from sea level - 4205 m (highest point on the Pacific plate tectonic).

Hello Harry,
I think about Volcanic 7 Greatest Summits without consideration of the seven continentals. Also the same about "The 7 Greatest Summits." Bet on the world climber polls and forget what we read in Encyclopedia... hee hee !  ;D

I'm going to climb the 7 closest hills to my house. Going for a speed ascent in under 5 hours.  ;D It's kinda wet and windy today though, things might get a little hairy

LOL nice one Rob.

Or if we're on that, the 7 points most distant from the center of the earth
so chimboraza in South america
I guess the Big E for Asia,
mount reinier(correct me on the name if I'm wrong, its in the state washington) for North america.
Elbrus I guess and kili stay. the rest I wouldnt know. I'm not into those numbers atm,

but to get back: 7 highest volcanoes is a nice new climbing goal. But I guess they're a bit easier then the original 7 summits(the the 7 negative summits are tough aswell :P)

Hi there,
I just joined this board, and saw this thread.  I am actually attempting the Volcanic Seven Summits, and was looking for some detailed info on Giluwe if any of you have done it, or been to PNG it would be great to speak with you. 

That 7 Second Summits list seems just as tough if not tougher.  Mt. Logan would be insane, and not to mention K2!  :o
Cheers,
Luke
