7 Summits was a whim purchase that appealed to me for the art, theme (mountain climbing) and a push-your-luck/dice draft mechanic that seemed simple. The game is designed by Daryl Andrews and Adrian Adamescu, the team that brought us the hit game Sagrada, back in 2017. Here is a description from publisher Deep Water Games:
In 7 Summits, you are a team of world-class mountain climbers. Use the dice to your advantage to climb the tallest mountain on each of the seven continents, upgrade your equipment, and advance your skills. Will you be the first to climb them all?
 

In this dice drafting game, you’ll choose a die to climb its associated mountain; you can stop early to play it safe, or press on for the summit. But watch out — each time you press on, you run the risk of an avalanche!

 
I made some videos on 7 Summits so you didn’t have to:
