Conquering the 7 Summits


Welcome to Climb High LLC ! My name is Bud Allen, and it has been a life-long dream of mine to climb the 7 highest summits in the world. The preparation and hard work that it takes to condition the body and the mind in order to face the challenges encountered during a climb are far beyond worth it once the peak is reached and the summit is conquered. The challenges and adventures are just a small part of what make defeating these summits such a life-changing event. For each summit conquered, you become part of a small group of elite professionals who have successfully climbed the world’s greatest natural wonders. Follow Bud Allen’s Journey!

Take a look around my site and discover why I have chosen to take on such a risky hobby. I have photos from my climbs, journal blog entries and information on the 7 summits all at your fingertips, ready to be explored. Also feel free to contact me with any questions or stories.

My Next Climb

I have already conquered Mount Vinson, Mount Elbrus, Kilimanjaro, and Denali “Mount McKinley” and the highest mountain outside of the Himalayas – Aconcagua, which I soloed in 2008. I plan to make my third attempt on Everest in the spring of 2012. I am saving Kosciuszko for last since I can take a ski lift almost to the top I feel pretty confident about summiting it!
