The Ecuador Climbing School team led by @estebantopomena is settled into their high camp on Chimborazo at this very moment, trying to get a little sleep before their summit push begins at 12am local time. Lots of fresh snow on the route but a trail was put in today, easing the effort needed for our team. Good luck you guys!!!

Ama Dablam team summits 8 December! Update from expedition leader, Jamie Holding IFMGA:
"December 8th 2019, just as 2018, a weather window of opportunity opened for Jagged Globe’s Bakery Team.
Have no doubts, the climb of Ama Dablam’s South West ridge is an exacting challenge. With Camp 2 perched at near 6000m, it’s a 2am start and straight into the steepness of rock and snow runnels up the Grey Tower.… See More

4 reasons & 4 pictures why the K2, Broad Peak, GI & GII Base Camps trip is an expedition that should be on your bucket list by 360 guide @adetnw
1. The simply mind blowing 360 degree views at Concordia Camp of the 7&8000m mountains. You cannot help but be totally and utterly absorbed into the wonder of it all.
2. Trekking on the Balturo Glacier and trekking pass the Trango Towers has got to be one of the highlights. An awe-inspiring wonder.
3. The real adventure of traveling and trekking in Pakistan which is still unspoilt and untouched by mass tourism.
4. The friendliness and hospitality of the people in Gilgit Balistan. Your heart will be touched and you’ll come away feeling humbled and privileged to have spent time here.
Join us and leader Ade Summers 02-29 August 2020. Monthly payment plan is available! More info & contact us via this link: https://www.360-expeditions.com/expeditions/k2-broadpeak-g1g2-base-camps/

VINSON summit on the 3rd of December! Rolfe and Wes reached the top of Antarctica via a rarely climbed west face route.
Rolfe has now completed the Bass 7 summits: Everest, Aconcagua, Denali, Kilimanjaro, Vinson, Elbrus, and Kosciuszko. (the Messner version swaps out Kosciuszko for Carstensz Pyramid)
A huge well done and well deserved after all that digging! It’s time now to get guiding! Next up from 360 is @_jobradshaw

(Part 1)
Have you ever named a mountain after a nut cream? This is what happens when Jenni and I tackle acclimatization together. Then an unnamed 5000's will turn into peanut butter mountain. 🐙 but back to the beginning. From Kathmandu, Jenni and I took ten hours by bus to rolwalingtal. On foot we went further into the valley by bit until we eventually arrived in the village na. There we heard about the nameless and possibly unclimbed 5000 s, which is just below the limit of a permit. Of course we wanted to get up there.  in a 18 hour push we approached the mountain and since the highlight in the morning was peanut butter, we just baptized the mountain lovingly peanut butter mountain.

Snowshoed from the tram to San Jacinto today. Thanks to Tracy’s crew, my friends Terry and Jenny and others, there’s now a good track (sometimes even a trench) to the peak. It was a hard day and there was a long line to go down, so I chilled out with a wonderful steak, potatoes and IPA at the tram bar. The drive home was a buzz kill — the west bound 10 was a parking lot 😖 On a sad note, the Craigmeister said a rescue was in progress for a hiker stuck in the snow at 7.8 K on Skyline

CUMBRE!! Today we had 100% summit success for all the members of our Cotopaxi #rapidascent team. Led by @solitude66 @christian_llivicura @nachoespinosaandrade, the team summited at 7:20am. It was the first high altitude climb for many members of the team and they topped off the experience with a summit! @samkieck from Alpenglow’s operations team is part of the group and after the climb, he reports being “totally addicted.” After accomplishing a 5,897m peak, we’re excited for the team members to keep pushing up to higher peaks. Let’s keep climbing! #climbskitrek #adventuredoneright @ Volcán Cotopaxi

Mera Peak & Ama Dablam // Summit push photos...& now too Lukla!
This morning we said our goodbyes to our Basecamp crew, the incredible high altitude climbing Sherpas & the members of Tim Mosedale’s team whom we’d shared Basecamp with for the past 7 days.

It’s a strange few days these as we head back to Lukla, then Kathmandu, then home. For the past 3+ weeks our little team has been on a huge journey together. In one way it’s sad that it’s slowly coming to an end. In another it’s a time of celebration and reflection on what’s been a utterly superb trip.

Tomorrow we head to Lukla.

On November 27th, 2019 at 7:30 PM the Palm Springs Mounted Police were dispatched for a lost/overdue hiker on the Skyline trail that had last been heard from. 5 hours prior. Riverside County Sheriff Aviation Unit (Star 9) was dispatched to the scene and began searching. Star 9 was able to locate the hiker off trail at approximately 3,500 feet in a large canyon with sheer rock faces around the hiker. Star 9 inserted a SAR member into the hiker’s location, where the SAR member placed the hiker in a screamer suit. At approximately 10:45 PM the hiker and SAR member were hoisted our of the canyon and back to the Landing Zoning at which point the hiker was medically checked by Palm Springs Fire and AMR and released to enjoy thanksgiving with his family.
