After an exciting Spring on Mt. Everest where he and Aaron Mainer completed the world’s highest rappel around the Hillary Step, Max successfully summited Everest for the 3rd time. We thought a few of you might like to know what Max has been up to this summer.
After returning from Everest, we kept him busy here in the Pacific Northwest on Mt. Rainier and in The North Cascades. Right now Max is up in the Bugaboos for a couple weeks and from there he’ll likely keep things low-key through the Fall with some personal climbing (mostly rock). We’ll have Max back on the schedule this December to lead our most popular holiday trek, Kilimanjaro.
We asked Max to write a little about his feelings on the upcoming December Kilimanjaro trek and here’s what he said:
Kilimanjaro for Christmas, what could be better? And a Safari for New Year’s Eve? Pretty sweet if you ask me. Join me if you can, it’s a great time to see the migrations on the Serengeti; I’ve always visited during the summer, so this winter trip is going to be a real treat for me. Bring the family, bring a friend or fly solo – either way we will celebrate the holidays, work hard and relax, though not all at the same time!” – Max Bunce
We still have a few spaces left on Max’s trip (Dec. 20-Jan. 1, 2014)! This is a very popular time in Tanzania and all reservations must be confirmed well in advance.
Make 2013 your Kilimanjaro Christmas to remember.
