As a climbing guide, it is Vern Tejas’s job to climb the tallest mountain on each continent. Always rebellious, Tejas never met a challenge he couldn’t overcome, even the daunting task of climbing Everest. In fact, he climbed the tallest mountain on each of the seven continents more than ten times each. Seventy Summits is his tale of the beauty, danger, and surprising freedom of mountain climbing and what it has given him throughout his life.

Vern’s resume of climbs, his own and as a guide, is vast - Everest (10 summits), Aconcagua (25 expeditions), Denali (1st solo winter ascent and 54 expeditions), Kilimanjaro (15 expeditions), Elbrus (34 expeditions), Mt. Vinson (1st solo ascent and 36 expeditions), Carstenz Pyramid, Kosciuszko, Cho Oyu (2006), Mt Logan (1st winter ascent, 1986), Mount Hunter (1st winter ascent, 1980), Mt. Vaughan, Antarctica (first ascent with Norman Vaughan, 1994), Mont Blanc, Chimborazo, Cotopaxi, Matterhorn, Mount Rainier, and more. He has guided Vinson more than anyone. Notable among his accomplishments on the Seven Summits, Vern climbed and guided all seven in 134 days, the current speed record. He also completed all seven twice within one year. Vern is also the first to guide the Seven Summits and the North and South Poles.
