Greetings Mountain Enthusiasts,
 
I hope you are well and having a wonderful 2013 so far.

We have been busy over the past year. Last Autumn saw success for our teams on Ama Dablam, Everest Glacier School, Baruntse, Mera Peak and Island Peak. During April and May we experienced our most successful ever Himalayan climbing and walking season, with 100% of our Everest teams of men and women of all ages reaching the summit. Also, our Cho Oyu expedition was the only team to reach the summit of the World's 6th highest mountain during 2013.
