(1/18) > >>

7summits:
This is a poll about the classic 7th summit issue:
Possible answers:
- Carstensz Pyramid, Irian Jaya
- Mt Kosciuszko, Australia
- Mt Cook, New Zealand
- I don't know
- I don't care, but this site is cool ;-}

Is Autralia a continent as Encyclopedia Britannica says so? But then there would be 6 summits as Eurasia is one continent. Is it a political border? Or a geaographical one? Oceania vs Australia?

Many sides of the story are explained in this FAQ. But what do you think?

Looking forward to seeing your votes and comments here!

I dont think Kociuszko is even a question, as the highest peak in australia is Mawson peak at 2745m
this peak is located on heard island which is part of Australian teritory

Ronald Naar:
It is Hkkabo Razi in Burma.

I plan to climb it in august 2003.

7summits:
Well, 'Ronald', I thought that most Australians would know that Burma /Myanmar is part of the Asian continent  ;)

Matt B:
Kociuszko is definately a consideration.  If the continents are defined as a large land masses, islands are excluded - they are not part of any continent.  Else if we're talking the division of the entire political world into 7 units "continent" then it's Carstensz.
