Episode 82: Pierre Carter – 7 Summits 7 Flights
Listen to this episode at the links below:
Pierre Carter has been climbing since 1982 and paragliding since 1988 where these activities have taken him all over South Africa, her neighboring countries, and around the world.
Pierre is currently attempting to hike, climb, and fly off the Seven Summits, the tallest mountain on all seven continents (including Everest), together with living life, and saving up the money required for these massive expeditions.
The adventure has taken him almost 10 years, where he’s so far completed five of the Seven Summits. During those 10 years, he also competed in the Red Bull X Alps in 2009, 2011, and 2013, commonly referred to as the world’s toughest adventure race where athletes race non-stop across the Alps from Salzburg to Monaco only by paraglider when the conditions are good to fly and by foot when they’re not.
Pierre is currently on track to fly off Everest in 2021!
