Everest Changes - What the Press doesn't understand.

There has recently been a lot of new stories about changes to Nepal's rules concerning climbing Everest. I'm here to tell you that (unsuprisingly) the press doesn't know what they're talking about. First lets look at cost:

The Cost of Climbing Everest

This is a great article by Alan Arnette. Everybody always asks about the costs for expeditions to climb Everest and Alan has done some good research to put together a well written piece.

Adventurers Needed

Here at High Adventure Expeditions we are always thinking about new adventures we can go on. Often our thoughts are inspired by reading/hearing about someone else's trip or plans. This happened today when we were part of a discussion on Himalayan climbing. After today's meeting we would like to plan expeditions in 2014 to climb Ama Dablam, Shishapangma, Island Peak and Kongde Ri.
However, we need your help. We need people to join us and share the adventure. If you have an adventure in mind, remember: If you can dream it, we'll do it with you.

Sad News

Its been a tough week for anyone associated with High Adventure Expeditions. Our friend and co-worker Tendi Sherpa died in an avalanche on Himlung Peak.
Tendi was our climbing team leader on Everest in 2012. He was always quick with a smile, extraordinarily hard working and loved and respected by all who knew him. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Training for Everest

One of the most common questions I get asked is "How do you train for Everest?"  The answer is sometimes surprising:

Why do I climb? - A Look into Expedition Leader Hugo Searle's 'Reasons Why'

Why do I climb? I’m asked this question all the time and I don’t think I’ve ever answered it the same way twice. It's not that I don’t know why I climb, but that there are so many reasons why I enjoy climbing that if I told you about all of them we’d be standing there for hours and you’d be bored to death. But here, in no particular order, are 10 of the reasons that I climb:

Five Peaks Wrap Up

The Five Peaks Expedition is over and was a resounding success.  All members are now home and adjusting to daily showers and wearing cotton again.  We had some notable accomplishments to recognize on this trip:
1) Ade and Doug reached the summit of Lobuche East. This was the first Himalayan summit for both climbers and was a truly hard climb that they should be proud of.
2) When we climbed Pokalde we invited one of our porters to come with us and it was Nima Sherpa's first Himalayan summit - hopefully they'll be many more for Nima.

May 12

 
Kathmandu. This morning dawned with the most beautiful, clear skies and spirits were raised that we would get out of Lukla in one day - a rare event. After watching many planes arrive and depart, at 10:00 am it was finally our turn. We boarded our small twin engine Dornier 228 and took off without incident. The flight was very bumpy due to high winds and our pilot told us that we were going to be the last flight out of Lukla that day, phew! Made it!
