I’ve had my fair share of adventures all around the world. I’ve written some great selling books about them too. Then several people started suggesting that I lead trips and organize them using the contacts I’ve developed over the years.

Why Climb With Seven Summits Quest?

I’ve spent years working on my own Seven Summits Goals, both the Messner List and the Volcanic Seven Summits. Most of us on this quest hire one of the large USA/Western guide companies and pay big bucks for first class accommodations and a little extra hand-holding. I prefer to go local whenever possible, and have developed a network of trusted local tour operators, guides, logistics providers and agents to work with me to give you nearly identical treatment as you get from the larger guide companies. I can’t name names, but be assured that these are the same people who subcontract for most of the big guide companies. You can find cheaper tours in many places if you’re an experienced traveler and willing to adjust your itinerary at the drop of a hat and put up with substandard fare. If that’s not you, then let’s get you hooked up and get you on the way to the adventure of a lifetime.

I’m not a guide, and I don’t claim to be one. I have mentored several people in ice climbing and mountaineering, but I am not a guide. I prefer to act in the capacity of an organizer and liaison with the local guides, porters, cooks and staff and help you to achieve your dreams in adventure travel and mountaineering in an economical and simple way.
