28 Summits of the World

A greatly expanded version of the Seven Summits, seeking to separate the entire world, including its oceans, into reasonably-sized sections. Most sections are recognised regions with borders, others are not-so-defined, and a few are a combination or a portion of recognised regions. Suffice to say, some of my decisions will be controversial. Some mountains lie on the border of two regions and are the high point of both.
