Amazing amazing climb. We trekked the Annapurna Circuit to acclimate, then back to Kathmandu, then Lukla, etc.. Blue ice on the fixed lines, a spectacular summit ridge, and some strong wind on the descent. The only party on the mountain. Overall a beautiful climb with amazing views. After 30 days in Nepal, I came home over 15lbs lighter!

A fun, interesting and challenging climb! The mountain was totally different from last fall and we hit both rock and blue ice on the slope. The weather was crap but the snowfall stopped for a minute for our summit pictures. I'll go back...

Wow - What a climb! Started from high camp at 3:30 a.m. Reached the summit a little bit later than planned but enjoyed the summit in bright sunshine, a clearblue sky and no wind at all. No other people except from my dear friend/guide Saran was there. It was so beautiful & peacefull. Absolutely fantastic!

Start from Base Camp at 2 o'clock night and summit at 7-30. Climbed in duo with Samduk Dorje Tamang (Everest 2-times summiter). We are first atop in this day. About 15 people was summited after.
Very strong wind on summit ridge.

My first real peak which was more than 4000m high so it was really rewarding expirience.

Attempted to climb Imja Tse as a grand finale to a trek to the Everest Base Camp with a good friend and a guide. Unfortunately a change in the weather meant we didn't make it to the summit but the whole trip was still fantastic and a good ending to the 5 months I spent in Nepal doing volunteer work.

Been there again, but two times is enough. All 4 of my group made it, no wonder after 19 days of acclimatisation including Mera Peak and Amphu Laptsa.

Climbed the normal route, one push from base camp. Perfect day, clear and sunny. Used fixed ropes after the glacier.

Samuli Mansikka

Climbed Island Peak with Mr. Tuomas Sovijärvi to acclimitize ourselves for Ama Dablam climb.

Did not establish high camp but climbed from the base camp to the summit with a single push.

No fixed ropes on the head wall but the conditions were near perfect for rope-free climbing.

This peak is too popular and can become dangerously busy in October. Despite this we had perfect conditions and snow conditions and we felt great on the summit. For a less busy peak of comparable grade (perhaps a little bit harder) try nearby Lobuche East.

A beautiful climb with my young son, Aidan, and two Sherpas. It was his first snow climb at these elevations and as others have said, this mountain serves as an excellent introduction. We brought ropes to fix but did not need them as fixed lines were already in place on the headwall and other climbers very gracious about their use.

We started at 2am from our high camp and reached the snow line at 3:45am. We then reached the fixed ropes at 5:30am. We made it to the top of the ridgeline by 6:00am for a beautiful sunrise and we were on the summit at 6:19am. Overall I thought Island Peak was a very easy climb and I climbed it with food poisoning. I look forward to climbing a more challenging peak the next time I'm in Nepal.

I had tried to climb Imja Tse twice before. In 2002 I caught a lung infection as early as Dingboche and "crawled" back to Lukla and kathmandu. In 2003 whilst leading a group, one member became ill at Chukkung and I took her down. So, this time I tried alone with a Sherpa friend and it all seemed quite easy. But, that's the way it is with mountains sometimes!

Went to high camp after 2 days in basecamp, got up and started climbing at 02:30, got the crampons on at the glacier at first light and reached the summit at 07:15. A very nice climb, used fixed rope up to the summit ridge, according to our sherpas the snow/ice-climb was more difficult this year, probably more fun that way!

Got up to the summit ridge but was too sick to go on (gardia), although I enjoyed the climb up the ridge and the great views.
