Upcoming Expeditions

Everest, Nepal - April 1 - May 30, 2015

Even though we had major political problems in 2014 with the Everest season and a total lack of respect towards expedition operators from the Nepal Ministry of Tourism, we still plan to run our Everest expedition from the Nepal southern side for the 2015 season. Some teams are switching to the north side in Tibet but we plan to continue to support all the loyal Nepal business owners who have helped us in the past. 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

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 13 - June 30, 2015

We spend our summers in the amazing Cordillera Blanca of Peru with an introduction to high altitude alpine climbing with three climbs in the Ishinca Valley. We climb two 5,500-meter peaks and a prestigious 6,000-meter peak. This expedition is ideal for those climbers wishing to progress to the larger ranges and those with tight schedules and limited experience. Our Everest and Manaslu leader and Sherpa climbing sirdar will lead the expedition.

Huantsan, Peru - 8,000-Meter Preparation - July 4 - July 24, 2015

We are now offering an amazing climb of Huantsan in the Cordillera Blanca as our 8,000-meter preparation climb. This expedition is a mini version of a Himalayan expedition and 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 leader and Sherpa climbing sirdar will be on this expedition for a true feel of what to expect in the Himalayas on one of the big ones.

* This expedition is nearly full, we now only have two spaces available *

Manaslu, Nepal - August 27 - October 10, 2015

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 eighth expedition to Manaslu.
