Romi Garduce's Seventh Summit Quest: Vinson Massif, Antarctica

Instagram

PITO para sa PILIPINO-2.jpg

I've been supporting and blogging about Romi Garduce's quest to conquer the seven summits ever since OAP started. (See: 21 posts categorized "Filipino Seven Summiter")

He is a former IT colleague from Procter & Gamble Philippines. I can still remember my first-ever fun climb to the summit of Mt. Maculot in Batangas, which he initiated. He's always loved the mountains and  "kinikilig" when he is on top of the summit.

He became popular when he and his two other Filipino companions successfully reached the top of Mt. Everest in May 2006. He personally inspired me when he shared with us an experiential account and inspirational talk about his successful climb up Everest. (see: Romi's Everest and My One Big Dream. What's your Everest?)

In the office, Romi is known as a happy-go-lucky person, but when it comes to mountain climbing or diving, he is the take-charge guy, the person you want to be with because you know you'll be safe with him.

This Christmas 2011/New Year 2012, he is finally completing his 10-year quest to be the First Filipino to ever reach the seven highest summits in the seven continents!

Here is a photo timeline of Romi's "Seven Summits" Quest:
