All your Island Peak pictures are fantastic!

You had really fine weather on your ascent. So Mera/Amphu Laptsa was a different trip for you?

Re: All your Island Peak pictures are fantastic!

yes weather was excellent most of our 2004 trip (Imja Tse only). On our 2006 Mera/Amphu/Imja trip we had not so good days on the beginning and while walking out, but had very nice weather when we needed it.
Best Regards and wish you more fine treks in Asia.
Peter.

Re: Imja Tse

Hej, we used a private but reguistered trekking guide that I now know for a while. I used him for 2004 Imja Tse and 2006 Mera Peak/Amphu Laptsa/Imja Tse round trip. He will use a local agency, will rent porters and also organize a local climbing guide if required by authorities. Anyone who wants to organize a trek in Nepal just send me a PM I can send details and contact. And also crosscheck the offering you might get from him. Best Regards, Peter.

Re: anchor

Local guides usually set up anchors by using home made t-shaped snow pickets. At least in the section from the glacier up to the ridge and also at the last part of the ridge itself. At my 2nd ascent of Imja in 2006 we where quite fast, so we had lots of unexperienced parties coming up when we already downclimbed. I carried 2 axes so I was able to descend beside the ropes instead of waiting in the wind. Regards, Peter.
