The Explorers Grand Slam is a mountaineering challenge to climb the tallest mountain on each of the seven continents (also known as the “Seven Summits”) and complete expeditions across the last degree of latitude to the North and South Poles. Less than 50 people have ever completed this lifetime achievement, and only four in under a year. Colin aimed to complete the feat in record time, leaving one expedition to head straight to the next.
On May 27th, 2016 Colin set two mountaineering world records, and claimed the speed records for both the Explorers Grand Slam (139 days) and the Seven Summits (132 days). These world records were part of a larger venture coined BEYOND 7/2; a project aiming to raise awareness and charitable funds to inspire kids to get outdoors and lead active, healthy lives.
Through satellite technology and a daily dedication to sharing his journey via social media, Colin was able to connect with millions of followers around the globe. With a focus on reaching kids, Colin was the first person to successfully Snapchat from the summit of Mt. Everest.
