PF sponsors Se7en Summits expedition

November 10th, 2006, Perfect Fools

They’re two wild and crazy Swedes: Martin Letzter and Olof Sundström have made it their mission to be the first in the world to climb and then ski down the highest mountains on each of the seven continents – the so-called Seven Summits.

So far they’ve successfully completed Elbrus (Europe), Denali (North America), Aconcagua (South America), Kosciuszko (Australia), Kilimanjaro (Africa) and Everest (Asia). Now they’re off to Antarctica, to the world’s most remote peak, Mt. Vinson, to wrap up the project.

Perfect Fools has sponsored these kindred fools with a new website. Follow their progress over the next two months at www.se7ensummits.com.
