Upcoming Expeditions


Makalu, Nepal - April 8 - May 31, 2017

We are now offering a Makalu climb from the spring of 2017 onwards. This prestigious peak does not have the crowds that the other popular spring climbs have. The expedition will have a high level support of climbing Sherpas, oxygen, helicopters to and from base camp and as usual, one of the best kitchens in the Himalayas. We plan to trek up the Khumbu Valley to acclimatize and then fly directly to Makalu Base Camp.

Urus, Ishinca & Tocllaraju, Peru - June 17 - June 30, 2017

Three Cordillera Blanca peaks from the same valley climbed in a fast and light alpine style. This expedition is ideal for those climbers with a short schedule or those with no regular climbing partners.

Dhaulagiri, Nepal - September - October, 2017

The unusually late monsoon of 2016 caught us out on Dhaulagiri with unexpected deep snow during our summit push. We will return in 2017 later in the season as we believe this peak is a great alternative to Manaslu.

Cholatse, Nepal - October 21 - November 17, 2017

Cholatse is a step up in technical difficulty from Ama Dablam and has very few climbers on her flanks compared to the very busy Ama Dablam. We know this mountain very well after successful previous expeditions and this climb is a true alpine classic of Nepal. This expedition will have a 1:1 Sherpa to climber ratio and helicopter transportation from Kathmandu directly to Namche Bazar and return to Kathmandu. This is an ideal expedition for those wishing to tackle the 8,000-meter giants in the future.

Kanchenjunga, Nepal - April - May, 2018

Kanchenjunga is one of the most remote and rarely visited 8,000-meter peaks. We will approach this mountain using helicopter transportation to reduce the expedition duration. The expedition will have a high level support of climbing Sherpas, oxygen, helicopters to and from base camp and as usual, one of the best kitchens in the Himalayas. The webpage will be active soon.
