According to this article over at MountainZone.com Daniel Griffith, a 55 year old Canadian climber, has become the fastest person to climb the Seven Summits, completing the Carstensz Pyramid version in just 187 days. Griffith began his quest by reaching the top of Everest back in May and ended it last week on Vinson.
You’ll recall that that I posted about Malli Mastan Babu, an Indian climber, a few weeks back who set another Seven Summits record at that time. Malli finished the traditional Seven Summits (including Koscuiszko) in just 172 days, and then added Carstensz Pyramid later on to bring his total for all eight peaks to 281 days.
