Adventurer Alison Levine made history by completing the Adventure Grand Slam -- climbing the highest peak on each continent (Denali, Aconcagua, Elbrus, Kilimanjaro, Vinson Massif, Carstensz Pyramid, Everest) and skiing to both the North and South Poles.

"Fewer than 300 people have succeeded in climbing to the summit of the highest peak of every continent. Very few of those people have also reached the two poles, completing the Adventure Grand Slam," said Harry Kikstra, director of 7summits.com.

Alison has survived some of the most challenging environmental conditions known to man and is a sought-after consultant and lecturer. She currently serves as an adjunct professor at the United States Military Academy at West Point where she teaches cadets about leading teams in extreme environments.
