Following is a list of the climbers who have reached the top of Mount Everest with Adventure Consultants during our previous expeditions since 1990.  We have made 258 ascents of the mountain, with climbers from 25 nationalities reaching the 8850m summit.

2014

We had a strong team in 2014, but tragically a serac fall in the icefall claimed the lives of 16 Nepalese high altitude workers and Sherpas, and all expeditions were halted on the mountain. Further information here.

Note; The tragic events of this expedition have been well publicized in recent years. On the descent from the summit the expedition was caught in a storm. Rob Hall was trapped on the South Summit with Doug Hansen and subsequently both died. Mountain Guide Andy Harris and climber Yasuko Namba also died; Andy was last seen returning to the South Summit to give aid to Rob Hall. A full account of the climb can be read in Colin Monteath's book 'Hall and Ball; Kiwi Mountaineers, from Mt Cook to Everest'.

Guy Cotter, David Hiddleston and Jim Litch assisted from Base Camp with the rescue of the 15 surviving members.

Guy subsequently took over the reins of Adventure Consultants in June 1996.
