MOUNT KOSCIUSKO

COMPLETED.           DECEMBER 2018

Mount Kosciusko holds the highest summit on Australia. Some consider this summit to be placed on a separate continent to the generally accepted 7 continents. In addition, Castens Pyramid is not suitably accepted as a summit as it falls under the same continental shelf as Everest. In order to please all passionate mountaineers, Pierre decided to summit this "mountain" and add it to one of his many summit achievements.
