Mt. Everest Expedition 2014 Notice

April 22, 2014

The past few days at Everest Base Camp since Friday have been a very difficult time for all of our team as we grieve for the Sherpas who have been lost. Our three dear friends were integral to our operation and our Sherpa, Guides and staff know most of the other thirteen Sherpa and Nepalese who have died. After much discussion and consideration of all aspects the tough decision has been made to cancel the 2014 expedition this season.

Our team members have empathy for the Sherpa community and we wish for everyone to be able to mourn their lost family and friends in peace.

We thank you for all your support and condolences, which mean so much as we try to recover from the enormity of this tragedy.
