It is truly an emotional moment standing on top of the world after all the time, effort and preparation that it takes to get here. The sense of relief and achievement on returning to base camp will stay with us forever. For many mountaineers, climbing Everest (8,848m) is the ultimate goal. We recognise that for most people, joining an expedition to climb the world’s highest mountain is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. We climb Everest from the south side, via the south col route.

Generally, it is milder and less windy than the north side with less time spent at extreme altitude. On the way up we acclimatise on the likes of Island Peak or Lobuche to reduce the amount of time we spend in the Khumbu icefall. This makes the accliatisation phase more interesting and goes down well with our climbers. To be prepared to climb Everest, you will need to have a good grounding in mountaineering and climbed to at least 6,000m.

Climbing an 8,000m peak such as Cho Oyu (8,201m) or Manaslu (8,156m) before going to Everest is the ideal preparation, giving you the experience and confidence in your ability to operate at extreme altitude. You will need strong determination and dedication, as well as good physical fitness and health to reach the summit. Before heading out to Nepal we advocate team meetings with plenty of communication in the run up.
