No step yet

Kosciosko in Australia:

Not exactly the steepest climb up.  Bikes were far faster than walking:

The top:



If you want to say you climbed one of the seven summits... without actually breaking a sweat, getting frostbite, or even having eaten a single freeze-dried meal, then this is the ticket.  A few hours from your car to the summit by foot, less if you bring a bike.

Tips / Recommendations

Bring oxygen tanks... if you have emphysema

Take all your pictures on an angle, so it looks like you're climbing something steep.

Do a handstand and walk all the way up like that.  Still probably easier than Everest, and $60,000 cheaper... and you can bring beer to the top.  Win:Kosciosko

Rossco, which of the 7 summits did you climb?

kosciuszko in Australia. An extremely excruciating, nightmare-inducing 6 week epic slog through deserts, rainforests, icefields, quicksand, snake-infested rivers, and right before the summit, a swarm of angry sea bass with frickin lasers on their heads. Actually, we rode our bikes 3/4 of the way up and hiked for less than an hour. Grueling.

I hope you're aware that Kosciuszko is not actually one of the 7 summits...
