I am on my way on 19 July 2013.

Going with a fantastic tour group so everything booked through them.

About 3000 $.

Sounds expensive! I am going in August for about $1000 with Pilgrim tours. All in, with air etc about $1800. Enjoy!

ScottyP, is that an $800 airfare to MRV from CA? I'd really like to know how you found that!

ScottyP, I guess it is all relative. Difficult to determine what is cheap and what is expensive, without a direct comparison.

I guess it really depends what is included in the Pilgrim Tours package.

Climbing it in Mid July with my girlfriend no guides. It's her first big mountain. Should be tough.

I was planning on bringing my own tent (privacy) rather than stay in the barrels. Anybody see any issues with this? Where do people not staying in the barrells usually camp?
