Upcoming Expeditions

Everest, Nepal - April 1 - May 30, 2016

Nepal needs our tourism dollars, pounds, euros and any other currency more than ever after the devastating earthquakes in April and May of 2015. Our expedition will be managed by Everest veterans Phil Crampton (13 times) and Dorjee Sherpa (23 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, 2016

Our Lhotse climb 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.

Cordillera Blanca, Peru - June 18 - July 3 & July 2 - July 17, 2016

Climb three peaks in the Ishinca Valley of the amazing Cordillera Blanca. This expedition will utilize a luxurious base camp and then discuss multiple climbing topics during acclimatization and rest days. Both the Everest and Dhaulagiri expedition leader and Sherpa climbing sirdar will be on this expedition for an alpine climb of Urus, Ishinca and Tocllaraju. These teams will be small in size for a more personal experience.

Dhaulagiri, Nepal - August 31 - October 14, 2016

Dhaulagiri is one of the lesser climbed 8,000-meter peaks and has been on our radar for quite some time. We are inviting experienced climbers, both old and new Junkies to form our first expedition team on her flanks for 2016. The expedition will have a high level support of climbing Sherpas, oxygen, helicopters from base camp and one of the best kitchens in the Himalayas.

Cholatse, Nepal - October - November, 2016

Cholatse is a step up in technical difficulty from Ama Dablam and has very few climbers on her flanks compared to the very busy Ama Dablam. This climb is a true alpine classic of Nepal. This expedition will have a 1:1 Sherpa to climber ratio and helicopter transportation from Kathmandu directly to Namche Bazar and return to Kathmandu. This is an ideal expedition for those wishing to tackle the 8,000-meter giants in the future.

Makalu, Nepal - April - May, 2017

We are now offering a Makalu climb from the spring of 2017 onwards. This prestigious peak does not have the crowds that the other popular spring climbs have. The expedition will have a high level support of climbing Sherpas, oxygen, helicopters to and from base camp and as usual, one of the best kitchens in the Himalayas.
