Here is what Vik from Seattle had to say:"The leader provided great team leadership and is a very good communicator, clear and patient. I liked the independence afforded on the expedition and we had a good team. The solar charger and battery setup in basecamp worked well and the double wall dining tent and heater were nice. The sherpas were very hard working and super friendly. There were no slackers on the staff."
Here is what the Mallorys from Canada, a family of 4 Everest summiters, had to say:
"SummitClimb is very patient and well organized. On expedition the showers were nice, the toilet facilities were good, tent arrangements were comfortable, the food servers were great, the food was tasty, and we even had heaters in basecamp and doctors on the trip.
The organization was well done and we had very little concerns, with all of our requirements were met. We had a great climb with a huge deal of success.
The SummitClimb Sherpas were very supportive, capable and helped us at important times when we needed their assistance. Preparation for the climb was made easy, with all of the important information available on the SummitClimb website. Questions were readily answered rapidly by the SummitClimb office staff. Most importantly, the leader was very professional, respectful, communicated information readily, and was a key component in the success we enjoyed on Everest"
Here is what Eric from Canada, the youngest Canadian male to summit Everest had to say:
"It’s a personal accomplishment I have been thinking about for a very long time. I am very happy with the outcome. When I saw the south summit I felt confident and on top of Everest I felt happiness, excitement, and relief at being on top of the world."
Here is what Everest summiter, Sophie from France had to say;
"I think Everest is very different than any other mountains I have climbed. You have to be strong, focused, and confident to enjoy it.I love climbing for fun. My personal sherpa was really fun to climb with and did a great job of keeping me motivated. We took it step by step together and he was with me the whole way. We stopped a lot and took breaks, shot photos, had snacks, and enjoyed the experience of climbing Everest. My sherpa let me lead about 60% of the time, which was nice because I love to leading when I'm climbing."

Especial thanks to RAB and other companies for product donations. Also big thanks to individual amazingly kind donors who have given up their old climbing gear and clothing. This clothing and equipment is facilitating the training and education of low income Sherpas to become strong mountain climbers and guides.
Our climbing expeditions maximize many years of accumulated wisdom leading trips to the highest mountains on the planet, a strong record of reaching the top of 8000ers: Everest, K2, Kangchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho-Oyu, Shishapangma and many other high altitude summits in all safety, along with an intimate knowledge of the officials who regulate the permit system. We have conducted countless 8000, 7000 and 6000 metre peak expeditions, and consider ourselves specialists in identifying, organizing expeditions to, and getting teams safely to the summit and back down. We have been running expeditions for over 20 years and we know all of the bureaucratic officials, liaison officers, yak drivers, and hoteliers/restaurateurs personally in the countries we visit. We must also give credit to our polite and highly experienced, hard-working climbing sherpas, high altitude guides, cooking, and office staff.
The goal of SummitClimb is to lead expeditions stressing 3 goals in the following order:
1. Safety at all times;
2. Having fun, being part of a good team, making new friends;
3. Success in reaching the summit and descending safely.
We encourage men and women from around the world, of all ages, to join us as an individual team member or with your own group , whether that is your spouse, partner, friends, sibling, clients, colleagues, etc. Most of our members join as individuals, our team dynamics work well, and we are able to build successful and safe groups of people that enjoy trekking, climbing, and traveling together.
