Climb the 7 Summits, the Highest Mountain on each of the Seven Continents, in under 4 Months.
On May 14, 2018, Steve took the final step to the summit of Everest and in doing so completed his goal of climbing the 7 Summits, the highest mountain on each of the seven continents, in under 4 months. In addition to achieving his personal goal, he also set a new 7 Summits world sped record.
In 117 days Steve climbed Vinson in Antarctica; Aconcagua in Argentina; Kilimanjaro in Tanzania; Carstensz Pyramid in West Papua; Kosciuszko in Australia; Elbrus in Russia; Denali in America and Everest in Nepal.
Project 7in4 was much more than just a test of physical endurance and stamina. Meticulous preparation and planning, mental resilience, critical decision making, risk management and team work in extreme environments were all critical to the overall project success.
Steve plotted and recorded his entire journey with GPS tracker to the highest point on every continent. Click link below to follow Steve’s footsteps and see photos and videos along the climbing routes.

Through Project 7in4, Steve was passionate about raising awareness and funds for two not-for-profit organisations which he has close affiliation with through his accident; SpinalCure Australia and Surf Life Saving WA.
With the generous support of all who donated to Project 7in4 along with the Rotary Kosciuszko Summit Wheelchair Challenge and the amazing Everest Base Camp Trekking Team, together we raised an amazing $44,606 for Surf Life Saving and SpinalCure.
