For mountain climbers, what is the “Explorers Grand Slam”?
Two tallest on each continent
The Seven Summits and both poles
The four longest mountain ranges
A mountain biking competition
Not only must an adventurer reach all Seven Summits to complete the Explorers Grand Slam, but they must also reach both the North and South poles. The North Pole is in the middle of the Arctic Ocean in an area covered with constantly shifting sea ice, while the South Pole lies on a barren continent twice the size of Australia. Fewer than 100 people have completed this monumental goal.
Answer: The correct answer is The Seven Summits and both poles.
