2017 Climber

Yes – enjoyed that it was more than just a mountain climb. Enjoyed the cultural aspects as well as the hiking/climbing. Yes. I’ve climbed with many guides through the years and appreciated Ben’s low key yet competent demeanor and his sense of humor. Appreciated his pace and his desire to make sure everyone was able to summit.

2017 Climber

I’ve always had a great experience on AAI outings. I just want to add that your entire team is A+++. Great client group this year too! I know everyone enjoyed this Mongolia expedition. The Mongolia expedition far exceeded my expectations.

2017 Climber

Excellent all around! Mongolia and Mt. Khuiten with AAI exceeded my high expectations! The overall experience was fantastic including Mongolia’s culture, people, and landscapes. I would highly recommend this expedition and climb to any alpine mountaineer who wishes expand their horizons and climb to Mongolia’s high point on the border of Russia, China and Mongolia. Ben Jones is a first class mountain guide and expedition leader. His competence and experience came through from day one in Unlaanbaatar to the summit of Mt. Khuiten. Ben Jones has the combination of a world-class climbing resume and winning personality. He has the ability to easily deal with the different personalities of a group of strangers and bring them together as a loyal and enjoyable team. Gordon has worked with me for over five years in an effort to make the Mongolia AAI expedition happen and this year it all came together. Gordon and the AAI Seattle team are wonderful. Also, Charles Mulvehill at Scan East West Travel is an excellent travel advisor and my flights from the USA via Korea to Mongolia and back were flawless.

I’d do it again. Met my expectations in terms of culture, conditioning, and mountaineering experiences.  Good logistical layout.  Great local guides, great point of interest visitation plan.  I rate it higher than other organizations expeditions I have been on.

  • Gear Review: Fozzils Bowls

    By Mike Hawkins It has been a long day – one of the most demanding climbing days you have ever experienced. Your legs are wrecked. Your back is sore and you have small bruises on your hips from your hipbelt. You have sunscreen caked into every nook and cranny, but even that didn’t keep you […]

  • Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
