X7, the name is a program: Seven athletes have the goal to climb the seven highest summits of the seven Alpine countries – and this exclusively ‘by fair means’, that means only with your own muscle power. By bike, by foot and with the skis starting from the valley no matter what weather condition will be. It was unlikely that there would be seven days of sunshine , – but that it actually would start that bad. To fight adverse weather conditions might awake your animal spirits. Seven guys added one more piece- they were rushing into the winterly nature of high peaks. In seven days up to the seven most powerful mountains in Alpine countries. Starting from the valley. Project X7.
