The Seven Summits Challenge



Some daring people have managed to climb the world’s “seven summits” (the highest mountain on each of the seven continents). This has inspired local businessman and outdoor magazine reader Steve Kissing to attempt to bag each of Cincinnati’s seven summits in one day: Mt. Washington, Mt. Lookout, Mt. Adams, Mt. Auburn, Mt. Storm, Mt. Airy and Mt. Echo. This is a major climbing feat requiring unparalleled technical skills, endurance and, of course, raw courage.

Steve and his company–Wordsworth Communications–created this challenge as a means of raising awareness and funds for Keep Cincinnati Beautiful. On each climb, Steve will have several “Sherpas” carrying his gear, wiping his brow and picking up litter left by previous climbers.
