Expedition Everest, the greatest challenge, is more than the most famous mountain on earth. It has a unique beauty, mystery and mood. A successful Everest expedition leaves one with the sense of being in the elite class of adventurers. It commands respect from all those who see her. Standing incredibly tall silhouetted against the shared sky of Nepal and Tibet, this mountain has many names: Everest, Chomolungma, Sagarmatha. Whichever name one chooses, most mountaineers have the dream of reaching its summit in their life time.
Each climber will be accompanied by a climbing Sherpa throughout the climb, with a second Sherpa to carry a gear between the camps. From the South Col the route ascends slopes of snow and ice to the Balcony (8500m) on the crest of the Southeast Ridge. The climb continues up the wide ridge past rocky sections to the South Summit. From here the route descends slightly and continues up the narrow, exposed ridge to the Hillary Step. After surmounting this 40 foot obstacle, a mixed chimney, the summit is close. Most climbers leave Camp Four sometime between 9 pm and midnight, planning to summit by 10 am if possible. On summit day the accompanying Sherpa will carry extra oxygen for each climber.
We will provide enough oxygen for the ascent. Normally Expedition Everest would be budgeted as follows: One bottle for the climb from Camp Three to Camp Four, one bottle for sleeping at Camp Four and three bottles for summit day.
The Khumbu Icefall is the most technically demanding portion of the climb, and is encountered right out of base camp. Here, climbers must be able to negotiate fixed lines quickly and without supervision. Skills required include the ability to ascend and rappel vertical to overhanging fixed lines. A special team of Sherpa’s will establish and maintain the route through the icefall. This team will span numerous crevasses with ladder bridges. Above the icefall, most of the route is equipped with fixed lines, with the exception of large flat and crevasses-free areas in the western CWM.
