Dan Bull’s recent successful ascent of Ojos del Salado has prompted me to update the list of Volcanic Seven Summiters.
This is an update from the list contained in my blog of 9th November 2016 (see here). The list is now as follows:

Mario Trimeri has also completed the seven continental summits (Carstenz version).
Andrey Filkov has completed the seven continental summits (Kosciuszko version).
Aleks Abramov, Vitaliy Simonovic and Dan Bull have completed the seven continental summits (both Carstenz and Kosciuszko versions).
This challenge is clearly becoming more popular. I have a note of a number of climbers who have ascended six of the seven. If anyone reading this blog has any further information on those attempting the Volcanic Seven Summits or if corrections to the list of the Volcanic Seven Summiters above are required, please get in touch with me.
