Western Guided Team Climb

Submit Review
This classic Mt. Everest guided climb is season after season our most popular option. It is well suited to climbers who would like the higher service level “Western style” guidance and are competent, confident, and team orientated climbers. This option is often reported as the most fun & enjoyable climb because of the camaraderie and sense of community with their fellow climbers and year in, year out achieves fantastic summit success. The Western Guided Team is guided by a Senior, world class mountain guide. A consummate professional who is genuine, caring, inspiring, strong, technically solid, and cool-headed. They will have previous 8000m climbing experience and a time tested, impressive resume. To complement your team climb you will also be assigned an additional Personal Sherpa above Camp 2 on the summit bid increasing your safety and opportunity for success.
