Climb Mount Everest – North Ridge

Altitude 8848m, Grade 4D

Climb Everest with Adventure Peaks! We have been organising expeditions to Tibet (Everest North Ridge and Cho Oyu) for over 15 years making us the most experienced and valued British company operating in Tibet and we are able to attract good International teams.

Description

There are those who scaremonger about Tibet giving indications that permits or visas won’t be available, this is a total nonsense. We are aware of the delicate visa process for entering the area and have been successfully sending teams twice yearly into Tibet without issue for over a decade

Along with other summiteers, we achieved the first British ascent of the millennium and the first Dutch ascent of the North Ridge. In 2003 we were successful in rescuing one of our clients from 8600m who had suffered a broken leg. Please read the full story on our website. That client returned to the mountain with us in 2006 and made a successful ascent. In 2004 our whole expedition was filmed by BBC 2 for the production ‘The Challenge’. This followed the progress of their client through his training in Scotland, the Alps, Aconcagua and then Everest.

In 2005 we were successful in putting the youngest British person on the summit at the age of 21; in doing this he also became the youngest male in the world to complete the Seven Summits. In 2006 we put two even younger climbers on the summit at just 19 years old, along with 10 other climbers. In 2007 we put 12 climbers on the summit, Including Ian McKeever who broke the world speed record for the Seven Summits in 156 days. In 2008, no permits were issued on the North Side because of the Olympic Games, so we moved our team to the South and had a successful summit bid. In 2009, back on the North Side, we put 13 people on the summit. In 2010 we had further success with 11 people on the summit and Stu Peacock our operations manager became the first Briton to summit the North Ridge route three times. In 2011we put 8 climbers on the summit and broke even more records. Geordie Stewart became the youngest person to complete the True 7 Summits, aged 22, at least for a couple of hours until George Atkinson summited and became, not only the youngest Briton to summit Everest, the youngest person to summit the True 7 Summits at the age of 16. We also helped Jaysen Arumugum become the first Mauritian to summit Everest. In 2012 our success continued and again in 2013 we achieved 80% success. Our 2014 expedition reached the summit on 25th May, unaffected by the sad events of the South Col route. 2015 expedition closed early due to the avalanche. 2016 again proved to be a successful year with everyone leaving high camp at 8300m, ending in 70% summit success and two clients turned around at 8600m.

Climb Everest in our professionally-led team

This expedition for experienced mountaineers who want to work as part of a team to tackle the original Mallory and Irvine route from the Rongbuk glacier. We do not use the word “guided” as this implies a level of supervision and duty of care that is not realistic at extreme altitude. Our leader/s and Sherpa team will endeavor (and always have) to go to the top with you, however you should have sufficient experience to move on fixed lines between camps as part of a group with the support of our guide and Sherpa team.
