Summited on a clear day, a little cold (I guess around -20C) but bearable. Superb views of the highest mountains in the world!!

teddycricket83Weather finally broke  Sucess!


Sat at the Kathmandu airport for 4 days waiting for a flight to Lukla. B/c the people I was with were on a tight time schedule, we had to climb faster than one would normally like for acclimatization. After 3 days of rain hiking, the weather finally cleared and we got a beautiful summit day. I went up with my guide but the other 2 members of the party only made it to high camp

richnycAmazing summit view  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Dec 11, 2002


After being properly acclimatized from my previous 6 weeks of trekking and climbing in Kangchenjunga region, I decided to visit the Solu Khumbu and Barun Makalu areas and get a little higher, a little faster. A team of 4, we headed out of Lukla on Dec. 4th, reached the high camp on Mera on Dec. 10th, and climbed the Mera Central on the 11th, before 9:00am, took some pics (WHAT A VIEW!!!) and headed down. I was back in Lukla on Dec. 14th. A superb 11-day trek and climb. December weather was amazingly clear, only a little chilly at altitude. Wouldn't change a thing, absolutely perfect!!!

Standard route to the summit. Very very windy on summit day with some clouds on nearby peaks but spectacular never the less.

10 out of 11 of us summited. Long, hard slog on summit day but well worth it. Great views.

Date Climbed: Oct 11, 2006


All 4 of my group made it to top. After 11 days of acclimatisation still exhausting though the route is technically very easy. Superb views, even including Kangchenzongha. Broke down high camp and descended to Mera La Base Camp same day.

We left on a clear, cold windless moonlit night. The head torch was not event necessary. Our entire group of 11 summited along with our three Sherpa and our cook. It was an amazing day with incredible views of Chomolungma. After being to the summit of a Himalayan peak you are changed forever….

Terrible Weather encountered during most of this expedition and thus no views on the Summit. Summit spoiled by death (heart attack) of another climber on the summit.

My first 6000m-peak. Straightforward glacier climb, but the altitude does make things harder. VERY nice view on the Himalayas!
