7 Summits &
7 Volcanic Summits
Climbing World Record
After a journey encompassing every continent, life and death, and endless perseverance, Daniel became the youngest person in history – by over a decade – to climb the Seven Summits and the Seven Volcanic Summits, trekking insect-infested swamps, navigating tribal land, and climbing barely charted mountain peaks.
As the youngest person ever to climb both the Seven Summits and the Volcanic Seven Summits, Daniel claimed his first world record by reaching the summit of the highest mountains and volcanos on each of the seven continents – including the colossal Mount Everest – the tallest and perhaps the most famous mountain on Earth. Imagine standing on the very top of the world, looking down at everything below. Achieving the feat requires immense physical stamina but also an extraordinary amount of mental toughness and determination.

His perseverance has taken him around the globe, from Africa to Antarctica, scaling the highest mountains in the world and experiencing extreme conditions in vastly diverse terrains. This entailed training and climbing over the course of 11 years between 2006 and 2017. His quest was complete when he reached the summit of the highest volcano in the world, Ojos del Salado, at the Argentina-Chile border on 27 April 2017.
After over a decade of being committed to his record, many would have taken a well-earned break. But, as Daniel stood on the summit of Ojos del Salado, he spotted a frozen lake that inspired his next record title – The Highest Altitude Kayak.

Having achieved his childhood dream of standing on top of the world, Daniel decided not to make climbing Everest the greatest thing he would ever do. And indeed, he hasn’t stopped there, going on to break numerous world records.
