With over 50 expeditions under his belt, including 7 on Everest and 16 on Ama Dablam, you can rest assured you are in experienced hands. Tim Mosedale has summited Everest 6 times including making successful ascents from both the North and South sides of the mountain as well as making aTRUMPETER Model Craft Master Tools Display Case (501x149x116mm) 09801 P9801Dragon 6268 1 35 GERMAN Sd.Kfz.171 PANTHER G, LATE Smart Kit double summit in one season in 2013.

It’s a lot of money to end up on the wrong side of the mountain or with the wrong group, or worse still, without enough oxygen.Dragon 1 35 6799 Sd.Kfz.171 Panther Ausf.F w 7.5cm KwK42 L 100 Panzer

A chance to join an Everest expedition on the South Col route at incredible value. This is a fully inclusive, fully supported Everest expedition with ample Climbing Sherpas to ensure suitable ratios on the mountain. Also included is a plentiful supply of oxygen and a 1:1 Climbing Sherpa ratio – in particular you will have Climbing Sherpa assistance from Camp 2 to C3 and from C3 to The South Col and then a very strict 1:1 ratio all the way to the summit and back to Base Camp.

Indeed, with more inclusions than other expeditions, arguably this is far far better value for money. Read on ….

Tim and the Climbing Sherpas will be operating on the hill throughout the duration of the trip. The Climbing Sherpas will be very busy getting camps established and stocked with all the necessary food, gas, supplies as well as stocking the higher camps with oxygen – it is later in the trip that they will then be assigned to their guiding duties.

Indeed the Climbing Sherpas are some of the strongest on the hill and have a very respectable number of Everest ascents ranging from 4 or 5 summits to double figures.

Our Base Camp and mountain services will be provided by Kame Nuru Sherpa who I have worked with for 13 years now. He runs a tight ship, has an excellent cook crew, some of the best Climbing Sherpas on the hill and they have a very high success rate of getting clients to the top (over 85% success rate and usually more). And this is the percentage from the whole team, not skewed figures by stating the percentage from, say, The South Col, which sometimes is quoted.Nuts Planet 1 12 B036 ViperTrumpeter 1 350 Russian Udaloy Class SeveromorskPLAMAX MF-17 minimum Factory KanColle YAMATO 1 20 Model Kit Max Factory NEWGabarit De Pontiac Gto À L'échelle 1 25 1966

Tim will be spending time with the group for the duration of the trip, from the 3 week trek in where we go over 2 high passes and ascend an acclimatisation peak, as well as time at Everest Base Camp and guiding high on the mountain (see the acclimatisation schedule for more information).

Practising giving injections at Everest Base Camp.

The other life saver is that everyone will be issued an individual set of ultra high altitude medication, know what it is for and, most importantly, know how to use it. We will discuss the pros and cons of how to administer medication, and everyone will be well versed in how to draw up and administer an injection. When you bear in mind that these drugs are life savers, and that they are given to allow recovery down the mountain rather than to progress further, it is vitally important that this subject matter be taken seriously. There have been several cases in the last few years where, if an injection had been available and had been given correctly, lives would undoubtedly have been saved. There is no point having only one set of drugs amongst the group as the person with the medication may not be readily available. And there is more to giving an injection that you might assume – for instance, if you stab someone through their jacket you may plug the hole with a feather.

You will know not only what medication we have, and what it is for and when to use it, but you will also be shown how to draw up and give an injection. It could be an absolute life saver.

We are only one of a few teams to adopt this approach. Personally I think it’s highly irresponsible to be on the mountain without not only the knowledge but also the ability to do something about it as well. And because we all have a mini set of ultra high altitude medication then we aren’t faced with the situation that once the only set has gone then it’s all gone.

Briefings will be held every day at Everest Base Camp to update everyone about progress on the mountain, find out about people’s health and to ensure that the appropriate stores and equipment are at the relevant places on the mountain.
