Dingboche to Base Camp

Sorry for the delay in getting this post out but things have gone a little pear shaped as of late. Before we get onto that, we should pick up from where we left off – departing Dingboche. We sorted our gear into what we would need for the next few days camping up near the Kongma […]

Gokyo to Dingboche

We were supposed to stay in Gokyo for two nights and that made sense as the day we arrived was a big one. It took some of the team over 8 hours to over the pass and down to Gokyo and were understandably exhausted afterwards, however due to changes in some people’s itineraries we had […]

Everest Round 2

New challenges 5 months after getting back from Everest in 2015 we had a beautiful baby girl we called Charlie and everything changed! I could not go to Everest in 2016 for obvious reasons which was good that I got to spend time with Charlie in those early months but also disappointing in the fact […]

2015 recap

The expedition in 2015 was going well. We had a great trek into Base Camp and got settled in. Enjoyed our acclimatisation climb of the nearby peak Lobuche, the team were fantastic (the best I’ve had in fact) and IMG were excelling at providing a top notch guiding service as usual. After a month of […]

The retreat from Base Camp to Lukla

As soon as Base Camp was decimated teams were evacuating to Kathmandu and Lukla. By the time we had decided to pack up and leave, helicopters had stopped flying from the Khumbu valley to Kathmandu as it seemed that the Nepalese government would commandeer any helicopter which came down and then re-purpose it for aid […]

Base Camp to Camp 2 – The Earthquake

This was the first rotation to acclimatise up Everest. We were on a schedule ahead of most others which would see us move all the way through the Icefall, up to Camp 1, spend two nights and then up to Camp 2 to spend two nights. The plan was to then come back down to […]

Base Camp Rest and the Khumbu Icefall

Well as promised our schedule granted us a few rest days in Everest Base camp before we tackled the next part of our adventure. Although rest days, there were activities and training which took place to keep the blood pumping and to assist with the acclimatisation process. It’s amazing how lethargic you can become up […]

Everest Base Camp to Lobuche Summit and back

We left Everest Base Camp 6 days ago and trekked the 17kms back down to Lobuche Base Camp (4700m) where we had been a week before. The air was thick and we all slept well that night. The next morning packed up our climbing gear and headed up to Lobuche High Camp (5200m approx). We […]

Pheriche to Lobuche

After a few days resting in the last teahouse of our journey, we packed up and made the move to Lobuche Base Camp. Lobuche is a 6010m mountain we would need to climb in time to come as a type of technical training ground before we hit the larger obstacles on Everest (such as the […]
