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.
Our Everest Training climbs on the Tibet and Nepal side of Everest and basecamp treks all went well.
Also this spring we had three projects with the Mount Everest Foundation for Sustainable Development you can read all about it on our website here: http://www.summitclimb.com/new/default.asp?linktype=r&mtype=smenu&vid=948&nid=221 . Back to Top
