Below are two list of climbers who EverestNews.com believes have reached the summits of the "Seven Summits#". There are two lists because some feel Kosciuszko (formerly referred to as Kosciusko), the highest point on the Australian continent should be included. Actually a point of debate. Some feel that Australia is really not a continent, but that Australasia is, and therefore Carstensz should be included...
