[PHOTO GALLERY]

Join our dynamic climbing teams on Mt. Everest, Mt. Pumori and Mt. Ama Dablam. Operating in the Himalayas since 1991 we are a owner operated expedition company. Unlike many long time operators today who hire guides and sherpas to run their expeditions by radio from base camp or even from their hometown abroad, Tim climb along side you on the mountain. As a mountain rescue professional and mountaineering instructor, you and your family can rest assured that you in good hands. Tim has been guiding extreme mountain adventures since 1983. During this time to now he has not had one rescue or incident in the mountains.

Want to do some brushing up or looking for a place to begin? Consider our Mount Everest Training Climb.

 THE CLIMB 

The route begins at base camp with a short walk along the moraine that leads to the icefall.  The icefall is a glacier that is heavy with large seracs and crevasses. The icefall is fixed and maintained with rope and ladders all the way to Camp I. From Camp I to Camp II the terrain is gradual with a few crevasses. From here the air is much thinner as we make our way up the Lhotse face with mixed snow and ice to Camp III.  From Camp III to the South Col the climbing is on easy to moderate mixed snow and rock leading to the South Col- Camp IV.  Summit day starts around 11:00pm the same day up fixed ropes on mixed snow and rock to the south summit, then a short traverse to the Hillary step then all up here to the summit arriving around 9:00am. The decent from the summit to the South Col takes 3-5 hours.
