Mount Everest Testimonials

When I compare this against most other teams I knew, this is amazing and reflects the attitude with which your guides lead. Thanks again for a once in a lifetime trip and look forward to the next adventure together (not sure what that is yet).

Thank you and AAI for giving me the chance to participate in such an amazing and life changing experience. Ben and his team made possible for us to summit Everest while feeling safe and enjoying the adventure and special thanks to Jangbu and Karma Sherpa, I wouldn’t have been able to push myself to summit Lhotse without their incredible support.

We started as a team, climbed as a team and summited as a team. It sounds so simple, but to keep that focus on Mt Everest requires years of experience and the support to make it possible. From all that I saw it was clear that Alpine Ascents did everything that was necessary to get us to the summit.

2017 Climber

Just wanted to let you know that I had a fabulous time on Everest and the trip could not have been better.  The guides were all amazing climbers, teachers, and friends.  I felt positive about the climb from beginning to end, and I thank you and everyone at Alpine Ascents for being a part of that.  I also thank you for putting together such a competent and skilled team of guides and Sherpa, that helped me get to the top. Each day and each step was important, and I will take the memories with me forever.  Many thanks and all the best.

I want to thank you for an adventure of a lifetime. As always the staff and logistics of Alpine Ascents exceeded my expectations and I couldn’t be more satisfied. A while back you mentioned win-win relationships. My win was a rewarding trip to Mt. Everest. AAI’s win (and mine too) is my decision to climb Mt. Elbrus and Carstensz Pyramid to complete the seven summits and trek to Machu Picchu and probably Everest base camp with my wife. As if that wasn’t enough, Joe has sold us on a yak tour in Alaska with another couple. Thanks again for everything.

The trip was superbly organized from start to finish, with superior facilities and support throughout. The climbing strategy, based on the guiding team’s extensive knowledge of the mountain, resulted in a highly successful and safe summit bid.

Could I take this opportunity to thank all at Alpine Ascents for a great Everest climb. Dave and Vern were fantastic throughout, I doubt there’s a better guiding duo and company on the planet. I shall certainly be climbing with Alpine Ascents for the foreseable future. When I heard Dave was guiding on Carstenz, my interest increased 10 fold, will let you know, thanks again for providing a first class expedition .

I must say that Alpine Ascents International once again proved that it’s the best guiding company on the mountain.

Thanks so much to all of you at AAI for making my dream of making the Seven Summits come true, I could not have accomplished this feat without the support of the entire team especially the guides and Sherpas.

  • Windshells 101

    Imagine climbing 5,000 vertical feet in a day during mid-summer covered in bubble wrap. Sounds hot and sweaty, right? That is essentially what it’s like trying to hike in a waterproof shell – loads of condensation and excessive heat retention. Thus, the need for a truly breathable active layer. Wind resistant, water resistant, and breathable, […]
