Mt. Lakpa Ri Expedition – Lakpa Ri Expedition information

Mt. Lakpa Ri Expedition                        Lakpa Ri is the easiest 7000 meter peak in the world, and it is located right next to Everest. The North Col on Everest is a spectacular location with incredible views and is located directly on the main climbing route for climbing Everest from Tibet. Climbing Lakpa Ri or up to the Everest's North Col could qualify you for climbing Everest on our "Basic Climb". Lakpa Ri is located on a high snow and rock ridge above advanced base camp. The slopes are 20 to 48 degrees, and feature solid snow and rock outcroppings. The North Col on Everest is gained by ascending a steep snow and ice face with an ascending device (Jumar) and ice axe and crampons. The climbing could be best described as steep walking/climbing, with climbers attached to fixed ropes at all times, and the dates we have chosen feature some of the most stable weather, with avalanche conditions at their most safest of the year. Our proposed schedule allows for plenty of acclimatization, training, practice and rest, as well as two possible summit attempts. Our style of climbing is cautious and careful, with excellent leadership, organization, Sherpa climbers, cooks and waiters, tasty food, the best equipment, two full kitchens in base camp plus advanced base camp, 1000s of meters of fixed line, hundreds of rock ice and snow anchors, top-quality high altitude tents and high altitude stoves, expedition mix gas, and full safety equipment: medical oxygen, gamow bag, and extensive medical kit.

                        This expedition to Lakpa Ri and the North Col maximizes many years of accumulated wisdom of the high Himalaya, a strong record of reaching the top of 8,000ers: Everest, K2, Kangchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho-Oyu, Shishapangma, and many other 8,000 metre summits, in addition to more than 25 Himalayan expeditions, in all safety, along with an intimate knowledge of the Tibetan and Chinese officials who regulate the permit system. We have conducted more than eleven 7000 metre peak expeditions, and consider ourselves specialists in identifying, organizing expeditions to, and getting teams safely to the summit and back down, of the world's 7000ers. This is our 12th expedition to Tibet since 1986, and we know all of the bureaucratic officials, liaison officers, yak drivers, and hoteliers/restaurateurs personally.
