The 7 Summits

new aspirations

Climbing Sigunyam Mountain (5025 meters above sea level) didn’t quite work out, climbing Haba Snow Mountain (5396 meters above sea level) didn’t quite work either.

Hence, I thought it is time to adjust goals and go for more ambitious targets: the SEVEN SUMMITS. (Note: this is an entirely separate initiative from the 26 summit plans described in an earlier post.)

Such an endeavor needs a lot of preparation and training; and which place is better suited than Singapore?

I’m not a man of many words, but a man of action. Barely back from high altitude training in Yunnan, I shamelessly made use of my elevated EPO-count and scaled the highest mountain in town. I’m very proud to report that we scaled Bukit Tima “on sight” and without the aid of bottled oxygen, Sherpas and/or Yaks.

Surely that is a good start to the journey!
