A mountain is a large landform that stretches above the surrounding land in a limited area usually in the form of a peak. A mountain is generally steeper than a hill. The adjective montane is used to describe mountainous areas and things associated with them. Tom Bicksler has always had a true passion for the Mountains, conquering the 7 summits will only add to his love and respect for the mountains of the world.
Summiting all 7 has been a long term goal and now that I am Diabetic it will only make the challenge that much tougher!
2012 is the kick off for Bicksler 7 with several training climbs, such as the Mt. Whitney "mountaineers route", Mt. Baldy, San Gorgonio, Mt. Shasta, Mt. Rainier, and the first of the seven; Kilimanjaro
"Getting to the summit is optional. Getting back down is mandatory".
