06:00AM on top waiting for sun, thanks to Makalu, we had to wait another 30minutes to get sunshine in to our faces :)

Great day  Sucess!

It was my first 6000m in a hard day from base camp. The views from the summit and the final ridge were impressive. We went a group of 5 people and all of us reached the summit. For two of us was the highest peak in our life...at moment. A day to remember long time.

Left BC (5100m) at 2:30am, topped out at 8:24am after a bit of a bottle neck at the base of the face (my personal little Hillary Step). Great views and just a week after Mera.

I'll be back Nepal!!!

Normal Route  Sucess!

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 very different Imja Tse  Sucess!

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...

Fantastic!!  Sucess!

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!

Very strong wind on summit ridge.

Imja Tse  Sucess!

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

Great adventure.

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.

Too sick and not able to climb the last meters but a great scenery.

Route Climbed: South-East Flank/South-West Ridge (Normal route) Date Climbed: October 8th 2005

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.
