Upcoming Expeditions

Cordillera Blanca, Peru - June 18 - July 3 & July 2 - July 17, 2016

Climb three peaks in the Ishinca Valley of the amazing Cordillera Blanca. This expedition will utilize a luxurious base camp and then discuss multiple climbing topics during acclimatization and rest days. Both the Makalu, Dhaulagiri and Cholatse expedition leader and Sherpa climbing sirdar will be on this expedition for an alpine style climb of Urus, Ishinca and Tocllaraju. These teams will be small in size for a more personal experience.

Dhaulagiri, Nepal - August 31 - October 14, 2016

Dhaulagiri is one of the lesser climbed 8,000-meter peaks and has been on our radar for quite some time. The climb can be compared to Manaslu in technical difficulty and we will climb in a similar style and philosophy as we have done on Manaslu for the past eight years. We are inviting experienced climbers, both old and new Junkies to form our first expedition team on her flanks for 2016. The expedition will have a high level support of climbing Sherpas, oxygen, helicopters from base camp and one of the best kitchens in the Himalayas.

Cholatse, Nepal - October - November, 2016

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. 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.

Makalu, Nepal - April - May, 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 Advanced Base Camp.
