Superb views  Sucess!

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

Weather 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

Amazing summit view  Sucess!

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.

climbed 6429m "trekking summit" in windy and cloudy weather... and then chickened out... did not try for central summit... but we gained a lot of experience for other climbs a high altitude adventure...

Mera Peak Summit  Sucess!

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

From High Camp  Sucess!

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.

Route Climbed: Standard Route Date Climbed: May 8, 2001  Sucess!

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….
