Mongolia 2019 – Final Day!

Hi all,

Our team got into Ulaanbataar late last night and spent this morning relaxing. In the afternoon we explored the city a bit and did some last minute shopping. We had a great last meal, complete with a few bottles of wine. Our team members start flying home early tomorrow morning. Overall the trip went well. We had our share of set backs, poor weather, and broken down vans, however the team stayed positive throughout. This trip has created strong friendships and great memories!

Mongolia 2019 – Delays & Reroutes

2019 Mongolia Expedition Begins – Team Explores Ulaanbataar

Hi everyone,

Our last climber arrived very early this morning in good spirits. We spent the day trying to get over our jet lag and explore the city. We spent time at both the National Museum and the Winter Palace of the Bogod Khan. The afternoon was spent at the folk theatre enjoying traditional music and dance. Tomorrow we will be flying to Bayan Olgii, the starting point of our journey to the Altai range.

Stay tuned for more updates tomorrow!

2018 Team Summits Ama Dablam!

Sorry for the delay – our team has been very busy the past 36hrs.

Yesterday 11/8 our team reached the summit of Ama Dablam. We will try to post some pictures shortly once we get some better wifi. The climb was amazing, challenging, and worth the reward. After reaching the summit the team descend back to Camp 1.

We are all doing well now and back at basecamp. We hope to fly back to KTM shortly.

Thanks and will update more soon
