For bragging purposes, there are few things you can do to beat climbing a mountain. Ascending the highest points of the globe -many die-hards will climb the highest on all seven continents - is something very few can say they have done. It takes extreme strength and determination. You need an endless amount of will power and desire to move forward. You need extreme preparation and the perfect timing. Mountaineering is no easy feat and the bragging rights are well deserved.
