Everest North Side Expedition:  Adventure Peaks


 Current Tibet Date/Time

The Team:

Dave Pritt Expedition Leader
Conan Harrod British
Philip James British
Patricia McGuirk Irish
Walid Abuhaidar American
Peter Madew Australian

On Thursday 27th March 5 of the above team left Heathrow for Kathmandu, the start of their Everest Expedition. Peter from Australia will meet the team in Kathmandu.

The Team will again be led by Dave Pritt, Director of Adventure Peaks who summited Everest last year along with 2 team members. Also part of the team again is Patricia McGuirk from Ireland who is attempting Everest for the 2nd time, last year Patricia reached the North Col at 7000metres.

The Team will spend 4 days in Kathmandu whilst final preparations are made, they will meet their team of climbing Sherpas, cooks and porters who they will spend the next 60 days with. Once permits have been obtained they will leave Kathmandu crossing the border into Tibet bound for Everest Base Camp on Tuesday 1st April.

The journey will take 5 to 6 days to reach basecamp which is situated on the Rongbuk Glacier at 5200 meters, along the way they will carry out acclimatisation walks. Unlike the South side, the team along with all their Sherpas and cooks and vast amount of equipment will be driven right to basecamp.

The Team will hopefully be one of the first teams to arrive to enable them to establish good campsite locations which will be home for them for the next 6 to 8 weeks. The Team over the next 8 weeks will be emailing progress reports home which will be updated on this site, you can now follow their progress and read their stories. We wish them all a safe successful expedition and hope they reach the top of the world.

Follow along here for Adventure Peak's climb on Everest.
