Adventures International Inc.
Our Seven Summits Program
We offer a very comprehensive Seven Summits program to climb all the highest
points on the seven continents: Kilimanjaro, Mt. Elbrus, Carstensz Pyramid,
Aconcagua, Mt. McKinley, Vinson Massif, and Everest. A program scaled to start
easy and work your way up to the hardest expedition. We focus on keeping costs
as low as possible while still offering the safety and infrastructure for a
successful program. One of the greatest challenges on our planet, now made
easier with modern transportation and communication. Our seven summits program is lead by Scott Woolums, director of Adventures International Inc. Call to discuss a program designed for you. We have been part of many individuals goals to reach the seven summits!
We are also offering a new program to try all seven summits in a record time,
all in 6 months!
Note: There are only a handful of
individual guides in the
world that have guided all seven summits successfully, probably less than 10!
Scott Woolums completed leading expeditions to all seven in January of 2005,
completeing his 3rd complete time around in 2009, and now is only one summit
short of 4 times guiding to all seven summits. !
This level of experience is mandatory to maintain safety and coordinate what it
takes to climb these peaks! Scott has not only been there, but has led 43
McKinley, Aconcagua- 33 times, Everest- four times, Kilimanjaro-
over 10 times, Elbrus- well over 10 times. So he is well on his way to doing
them all again...and again! Very few other individual guides in America or the
world for that matter has the proven record of safety and success that has been
our standard. Well over 20 years of guiding in the highest mountains of the
world! No fatalities, no serious accidents! And remember, that is not the
collective experience of all our guides, that's the experience of the guide you
will be climbing with!
Seven Summits in the Record Time!
Scott is offering a very unique program to climb all
Seven Summits in the record fastest time. This has to be a well coordinated
effort to succeed. It involves private trips to each peak on all 7 continents.
Very few guides, if any have the level of experience and abilities to make this
goal a reality. Call Scott directly to discuss this trip! Could be combined with
reaching North and South Poles!
We operate one of the most extensive Aconcagua programs in the world. Leading up to 9 trips every year to South Americas highest point. We offer trips via the absolutely beautiful and remote Upper Vacas Route that truly is the only way to climb the mountain considering the crowds and problems of the other routes. We believe you will find our Aconcagua program to be the very best there is available!
Carstensz and Irian Jaya. The wildest place on Earth! This trip demands solid experience in knowing the system, approaches, agents and routes within Irian Jaya or West Papua as it is now called. Changing political conditions require having reliable knowledge of the current situation within the country. We have
had 2 trips each year into Carstensz Pyramid led by American guides that have the ability to keep things together and under control.
Special Note on Carstensz: Due to political instability we can not guarantee how
Carstensz Expeditions can be run. The alternate seventh summit, as described in Dick Basses
book is Kosciusko in Australia. We are offer this as an alternate if Carstensz
Elbrus, a fascinating adventure into the heart of the Caucus Mountains. We have designed and built our Elbrus program over many years and have one of the most successful and solid expedition programs in the region. Our newer route up from the observatory offers a very interesting, uncrowded route compared to the thousands on the standard
route. Check this out! Leading every trip will be American guides in addition to
highly experienced local asst. guides to keep your experience safe.
Everest, via the Nepal Side. This is the proven route to reach the summit. The infrastructure to climb Everest is daunting. We have in place a program to allow safe and successful expeditions to reach the summit. Our guides, our team of Sherpas and the logistics that it takes are the equal of any other company currently leading Everest trips! We have the experience and capabilities to reach the top of our planet!
No other company offers the personal level of service that we can by keeping our
expedition sizes smaller. Check out the reports from our successful 2002 and
2003 climbs! Follow our 2006 trip to the North side!
To the roof of Africa, Kilimanjaro is a fun and easier peak in the scope of the seven summits. Combined with a Safari to allow the full African experience. We have a team of the best local agents, safari drivers and guides that assist on all our Kilimanjaro trips. Led by American Guides on the best choice of routes with multiple departure dates to choose from. Our newest route travels through a beautiful old growth forest, up to the Shira Plateau, then around the remote and un-crowded Northern Circuit to the summit. Going this way you will experience all sides of Kilimanjaro and be well acclimatized for the summit! A much better experience than in and out one of the very crowded routes!
Join our McKinley expedition, led by Scott Woolums. Scott is one of the leading guides on McKinley for over 22 years. With a record number of ascents. His experience in Alaska is second to none. 30 summits in 41 expeditions! He has also explored and climbed in many other areas of the Alaska Range, with a notable record of first ascents of the major peaks. This experience is what our McKinley program is based on. We operate through Mt. Trip in Anchorage and have at least one trip every season.
Our Vinson departures are all led by our best high altitude guides. Logistics, flights to the mountain, base camp services and USA guides. We are one of the
few exclusive agencies to work together with Antarctica Logistics to offer fully supported Vinson Massif expeditions. Everything to reach one of the most remote summits in the world!
