Mera Peak etc. upcoming trips! (Newsletter Oct 27th 2013)

Greetings from Kathmandu! I am at the moment awaiting for my Mera Peak group to arrive. My latest Annapurna Basecamp group is right now flying from Delhi to Helsinki.
We’ve now done all the Annapurna treks of the season and are flying to Lukla very early on Monday morning. Indian Cyclone brought a lot of snow in the region so I am eager to see how the conditions are. We have plenty of time before our summit-day on Mera Peak so we are not to worry.

I also heard that Summitclimb groups have during last couple of days been on top of Mera and also Island Peak. Season’s first Ama Dablam summit-pushes are underway and might have already happened today! Check the dispatches here:

Island Peak

I’ve been happy spending time with Altitude Junkies people here in Kathmandu! After getting back from Manaslu they are now getting gear ready for Everest next spring! So spring 2014 is South side! Please do contact or for enquiries!
Mount Everest, South Col 2014.

One of the most interesting projects for next year is just to be published on Junkies’ website! After Manaslu expedition in mid-August to early October they are offering a trip to Cholatse! This very beautiful peak is located very close to Mt. Everest and offers really fun climbing! This trip is very, very highly recommended if you want to do some more technical climbing at moderate altitude! Ever wanted to climb Ama Dablam but are concerned of the crowds? Well, here we have the most perfect climb for you!

Please look for the Cholatse program here!

The upcoming Mera Peak trip is for now the last trip of the season for me here in Nepal! We are offering a trip to Aconcagua in December – January.
Aconcagua Dec 2013 – Jan 2014

We already have a group confirmed for Mount Kenya & Kilimanjaro trek starting on Jan 29th! Success-rate on my Kilimanjaro-trips by far exceeds the average. Of my 100 members 97 make it to Uhuru Peak and the rest to either Gilman’s Pt. or Stella Pt. at the crater rim. This is a ’once in a life-time’ trek and I do consider it best to do it the proper way!
Find the Mt. Kenya & Kilimanjaro program here!

I seem to have reserved quite a bit of time for personal climbs next year! First it’s the European Alps (the best of the best!) in Mid-March and Himalayas in April-May! I have not yet decided and settled on anything but do have a couple projects brewing!

Please do follow my climbs and treks on Twitter here!
Also check on my SPOT-account to see in near real-time where I am at the moment! I carry the messenger with me on all my guided treks for the members’ friends and families to follow our progress!

That’s it for now! Now to the airport! Let the Mera Peak adventure begin!
