Gary Johnson summits Mount Vinson, highest point in Antarctica and his final summit of each of the highest points on all seven continents

By Dave Hahn at RMI Expeditions via Dean Troy:

Hey this is Dave Hahn calling from the summit of Mount Vinson, 16,067 feet above sea level, highest point in Antarctica. Our whole team is here! We got here at 3:45 local time and we’re still here at about about 10 minutes after 4:00. It is just beautiful, windless, sunny, clouds, but just a few of them. So we’re feeling very lucky. Beautiful day up here. We’ll be in touch from High Camp.

Congratulations to Gary Johnson & Bob Sullivan who have now reached the summit of each of the highest mountains on all seven continents. An impressive accomplishment! And congratulations to Dave Hahn on his 35th summit of the Vinson Massif.

    Congrats to Gary Johnson!

    I’m only at 1 myself (Kilimanjaro).

    I admire anyone who has set tough personal goals and reached them. Congratulations to Gary.

    >this just shows he likes to get really high.

    Yeah, he told me about the Indonesia trip. People frequently die or get evacuated, and on his trip several people who all paid 5 figures each to be there had to pay 5 figures each to be rescued and flown out. In South America, it was so cold that the guide turned back short of the summit. At Everest, Gary had one broken leg and hypothermia in another foot. But, hey, according to his detractors, this just shows he likes to get really high.

    Congratulations to Gary and the other climbers. Hope to see you back alive and well.

    Gary told us in New York that Indonesia was the worst one.

    Congrats to all for a successful climb. Safe trip back.
