Dear Mountain enthusiast,
I hope you are well and having a wonderful 2013 so far.
We have been extremely busy and just 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. Nice work everyone! We divided into two groups, with the "fast group" going first with some super strong and friendly Sherpas, then the others going second with the "slower team". This year all of us were blessed with good weather on Everest summit climbs, walks, treks, glacier schools, and climbs of "smaller" peaks.
Also our Cho Oyu Spring climbers all reached the summit, in fact the SummitClimb Cho Oyu team has been the ONLY team to reach the summit so far this year!

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 .
