Everest Base Camp
Another service we now include in the expedition price is Additional Sherpa Support. This enables climbers to forego the carrying of heavy packs, which is often very debilitating at high altitude. For some climbers, the long climb with a pack up to the top camp at South Col can leave them too exhausted for summit day and hence, this service greatly enhances your summit opportunity.

And for the climbers on our team, this major step in their career is based on their skill level. I was the first Black American instructor at NOLS – probably the first Black American employee – when I started back in 1994. When I look back at almost 30 years in the industry as an outdoor professional I’ve been to Denali twice, I’ve been to Kilimanjaro twice, and I ran the first Black American expedition there. I’ve done a lot of work with guides and porters in Kenya and Tanzania as well as volunteer work training high altitude workers with the Khumbu Climbing Center in Nepal, but people don’t know who I am. Personally, I don’t need that, but we don’t have room not to talk about ourselves anymore, by doing so we let history repeat itself.
