As I mentioned in my recent post, there have been two more completions of the Volcanic Seven Summits. The list below reflects these.
This post is an update to my posts of 9th November 2016 and 28th June 2017.
These completions have been achieved by Katie Sarah, an Australian guide based in Adelaide who runs Sarah Mountain Journeys, and well known UK guide David Hamilton who runs High Adventure and regularly works with both Jagged Globe and ALE. Links to their websites are in the list.
In addition, further research indicates that the French guide and photographer, François Bernard, has also completed the Volcanic Seven Summits.

Mario Trimeri, François Bernard and David Hamilton have also completed the seven continental summits (Carstenz version).
Andrey Filkov and Katie Sarah have 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).
I would be interested to hear from anyone who is aware of any person looking to achieve this challenge. Ted Fairhurst who only has Ojos del Salado to do is presently in Chile having to deal with poor weather in order to complete the challenge.
[Note that this blog was updated on 4th March 2018 in order to add François Bernard to the list.]
Further updated lists of completers can be found in this blog and here.
Dipanjan Das says
My friend Satyarup Siddhanta has completed both the versions of 7 summits. He has recently completed Mt Giluwe and is two volcanic summits away from completing the prestigious holder of 7 summits as well as 7 volcanic summits. The remaining are Pico de Orizaba & Mt Sidley. He has also completed skiing the last degree in South Pole. Let me know how I can connect with you to provide more details. If Satyarup sticks to his plan, he’ll be the youngest in the world to have completed both seven summits and seven volcanic summits. Currently this is held by Daniel Bull.
