The Seventh Summit is the story of mountaineers who have taken on the Seven Summits Challenge—climbing to the top of the highest mountain peak on each of the seven continents. Four seasoned mountain climbers attempt the toughest climb of their careers, Alaska’s Mount Denali. Sheikh Mohammed Al Thani from Qatar and two of his close friends, Raed Zidan from Palestine and Massoud Kalafji from Iran, who are attempting their seventh and final summit, are now joined by Suzanne Al Houby, a Palestinian mountain climber who was the first Arab woman to summit Mt. Everest. Will they realize their long-awaited goal?
