Well, we took a long weekend here at IMG too. Why not; we had great success on Kilimanjaro earlier this month, a couple teams on top of Aconcagua in February, Orizaba summits in Mexico and a great training seminar on Rainier last week, not to mention all of our ice climbers in Ouray climbing hard. A pretty good February so far.
What’s next: the next big push will be in the Himalayas. Everest season (March-May) means lots of trekkers and climbers will be heading to Kathmandu and eventually Lukla to begin the trek to Everest Base Camp. Some will stop there, while others will check-in at Base Camp then move back down valley to climb Lobuche. Some will do both en route C2 or C3 or on up to the summit of Lhotse or Everest. We’ve got lots of options in the Khumbu in the Spring… we’ll be back with more on Everest and the Himalayas in the coming weeks.
That’s all for now.
