Alex Harris and Sean Disney are two South Africans that successfully summited all seven international peaks (include Everest)?

Would need to check if Alex has, but pretty sure Sean completed the whole shebang with Vaughan de la Harpe?

True. Alex has also been to both poles, while I believe Sean has sailed around the world.

Both Alex and Sean have climbed Everest from both sides.
Sean is the first (possibly only) Saffa to have done the 7 summits twice, and a grand slammer (all 3 poles)
Alex has crossed the Empty Quarter on foot and Antarctica.

Is Messner still the only one with the 7 summits, all the 8000ers and both poles?
