Upcoming Expeditions

Huascaran, Peru - June 14-July 1 & July 5-July 22, 2014

We spend our summers in the amazing Cordillera Blanca of Peru with our climb of Huascaran. This peak is nearly 7,000-meters and will also act as our 8,000-meter preparation climb. The climb itself is a more technical climb than the trek up Aconcagua's two most popular routes and this expedition will allow us to review all the techniques needed and give the necessary advice on how we climb on the more frequently climbed 8,000-meter peaks such as Manaslu and Cho Oyu. Both the Everest and Manaslu expedition manager/leader and Sherpa Sirdar will be on this expedition for a true feel of what to expect in the Himalayas on one of the big ones. We are now offering two expedition dates for Huascaran for 2014.

Manaslu, Nepal - August 27-October 10, 2014

Manaslu is a great alternative to the busier and more expensive Cho Oyu. We know the mountain well and as usual we will have a 1:1 Sherpa to climber ratio, professional weather forecasts and some of the best Sherpa and cooks on the mountain. The expedition will be supported by helicopter transportation to Sama Goan and back to Kathmandu at the conclusion of the expedition. This will be Phil Crampton's seventh expedition to Manaslu.

Cholatse, Nepal - October 20-November 16, 2014

We are now offering a climb of Cholatse as an alternative to the crowded Ama Dablam. The Southwest Ridge of Cholatse is comparable to the Southwest Ridge of Ama Dablam with less rock to climb. A true alpine climb in the Himalayas. The expedition will have a 1:1 Sherpa to climber ratio and be supported by helicopter transportation to Lukla and back to Kathmandu.

Everest, Nepal - April 1-May 30, 2015

Our expedition will be managed by Everest veterans Phil Crampton (12 times) and Dorjee Sherpa (21 times) and will be supported by our regular crew of climbing Sherpa and cooks. The expedition will be supported by a 2:1 Sherpa to climber ratio, high oxygen flow rate and will travel by helicopter to Lukla and from Pheriche.

Lhotse, Nepal - April 1-May 30, 2015

Due to requests from old and new Junkies climbers we are now offering a Lhotse climb that will run alongside our Everest expedition. The expedition will be managed by Phil Crampton and Dorjee Sherpa and will utilize all the services of the Everest climb including a 1:1 Sherpa to climber ratio, high oxygen flow rate and will travel by helicopter to Lukla and from Pheriche. This is a great climb for climbers thinking of possibly climbing Everest from the Nepal side in the future.
