Patrick Allan Morrow, CM (born October 18, 1952 in Invermere, British Columbia) is a Canadian photographer and mountain climber who was the first person in the world to have climbed the highest peaks of all seven continents: Mount McKinley in North America [1977] , Aconcagua in South America [1981], Mount Everest in Asia [1982], Elbrus in Europe [1983] , Mount Kilimanjaro in Africa [1983] , Vinson Massif in Antarctica [1985], and Puncak Jaya in Indonesia [1986]. Morrow was the first to summit the seven peaks on the Messner List of Seven Summits while Richard Bass was the first to complete the Bass List. Morrow was the first person to climb all the peaks on both lists. Morrow has other high altitude mountaineering achievements, and in 1987, he was made a Member of the Order of Canada for exploits [that] have carried him into the top ranks of international mountaineering. Professionally Morrow was a still photographer until about 2001 when he transitioned to video.
