Guinness World Record – Fastest Time to Climb the 7 Summits

In Media, Project 7in4by Steve

10th Birthday

8th July 1991 – for my 10th birthday my parents gave me a copy of the Guinness Book of Records. It was my favourite book. I loved reading all the amazing feats people had achieved.

38th Birthday

28 years on – it is incredible to receive an official Guinness World Record myself, for “The fastest time to climb the Seven Summits including Carstensz (male)”, which I achieved in 117 days, 6 hours and 50 minutes.

Thank you to everyone for all the incredible support I’ve received throughout this journey, particularly my beautiful sister, Tanya, and climbing partner Jon Gupta.
