A 7Summits campaign involves climbing the highest mountain on each continent. There are less than 250 people in the world who have climbed all 7Summits. When Rob Hill summits Mount Everest, he will be one of the first 15 Canadians to complete the seven summits. More importantly though, when Rob stands on top of the world, he will be the first person living with Crohn’s disease and an ostomy to achieve this amazing feat! Rob climbs to raise awareness of intestinal disease, ostomy and the not-for-profit organization he founded: IDEAS.
Rob has climbed six of the 7Summits, in this order:
2002 – Mount Elbrus, Russia, 18,481 feet (Europe)
2005 – Denali, Alaska, USA, 20,320 feet (North America
2008 – Everest base camp trek
2009 – Kilimanjaro, Tanzania leading the IBD Adventures team
2010 – Everest South Summit
