Recent News: Our Shisha Pangma Expedition has just returned with all 6 members and 2 sherpas reaching the summit. Our trekking members also walked to ABC and even higher. Click here to read news of our expedition, listen to audio dispatches, and view recent photos of the climb.
Some members ski Shishapangma (it is much better for skiing than Cho Oyu), as it has a north facing slope which is wind protected between camp 2 and camp 1/2. The snow is often best there and it's on the climbing route.
