Mt. Everest Expedition from North

We provide full support including all tents, all meals at BC and on the mountain, all oxygen, good walkie talkies, better than 1:1 sherpa ratio, satellite phones, internet-email to keep your sponsors and family happy and up to date, rescue service and plenty more, all managed by TFT team.

Summitting Everest later in May always safer. First, it is warmer, it is scary to think how many people got frostbite in the 2006 season by summitting early, including in the big commercial expeditions. Our 2006 team summitted at the beginning of the warm period, 25 May, without a single case of frostbite. Second, if the weather has already been good then the zoo is over. Third, if, as in 2004, the jet stream winds do not stop until very late in the season, we can still climb, we still have time and strength and have not been waiting forever. In 2005 many expeditions had to leave the mountain before they ever had a chance to mount a summit push.
