SEVEN SUMMITS IN SEPTEMBER
After the amazing success of the climb the Burji we have decide on a new challenge for our guests. So throughout the month of SEPTEMBER 2016 we are going to successfully climb the 7 highest mountains on the 7 continents. We are giving you time to be ready for this epic experience.
The challenge is something all climbers want to achieve and very few have completed this epic feat however we know our TRIB3 users can complete this (without having deprived oxygen or the cold)
SO HOW WILL THIS WORK
Over each week we will climb the following 7 mountains by using the elevation against distance to evaluate the height. You will also be using elevation masks on your final summit, which will be Everest to mimic the deprived feeling of oxygen, this will feel hard but it will really push you to your limits.
E.g.
4897m We need to travel 3.5miles; the largest is Everest 8850m where we have to travel 5.5miles sounds easy!
Vinson, Antarctica – 16,067’/4897m
Carstensz Pyramid, New Guinea – 16,023’/4884m
Elbrus, Russia – 18,513’/5642m
Kilimanjaro, Africa – 19,340’/5896m
Denali, Alaska – Mount McKinley– 20,320’/6194m
Aconcagua, Argentina – 22,902’/6980m
Everest, Nepal – 29,035’/8850m

In ancient Swahili, Kilima means “hill, little mountain” and Njaro meaning “white” or “shining.” The amount of ice on the summit of Kibo has decreased by over 90% between 1993 and 2000, with scientists predicting that the seasonal ice may disappear completely by 2022.
Vinson Massif, Antarctica, 16,050 feet

A massif is “a section of a planet’s crust that is demarcated by faults and flexures.” Vinson Massif is located about 150 miles from the South Pole, and was first climbed by the American Alpine club in 1963, which is quite recent in history due to its particularly hazardous conditions.
Carstensz Pyramid, Oceania, 16,024 feet

This mountain, located in Indonesia, is also called Mount Carstensz or Puncak Jaya. There is a government permit required for access to the summit and is home to one of the world’s largest mines.
 
Mount Elbrus, Europe, 18,510 feet

Mount Elbrus mountain has many names (some of which are of Turkic, Georgian and Perso-Arabic in origin) because of its location on the border of Asia and Europe. Mount Elbrus is actually an inactive volcano, whose last eruption took place between 0 and 100 AD.

Also called Mount Chomolungma, Mount Everest is located in Nepal and is the highest elevation in the world. From standard climbing routes that pass through the “death zone” – altitudes higher than 26,246 feet – corpses can be seen in their unaltered positions.

This mountain, located in the Andes mountain range, is located in Argentina with its summit 15 kilometers from the border with Chile. Aconcagua was famously used in a Disney cartoon, in which it was made to be a terrorizing character.
