The Expedition Team

Team Membership

The team will have a maximum size of 12 members and 3 guides.  A team of between 3 and 6 climbing Sherpas will carry loads and support the summit climb and we will have a cook at Base Camp. 

Expedition Leader

The expedition leader will be scheduled approximately six months out from the trip start. All of our trip leaders to the 8000m peaks have extensive experience at high altitude and a proven record of safety, success and compatibility.

Other Expedition Members

We get a wide range of experience levels and nationalities on our trips and the expeditions are geared to accommodate this.  People without a lot of high altitude experience often experience trepidation about their performance before a trip and the only way to find out how you will perform is by going to altitude.  Increasingly we find that accomplished high altitude climbers are using our services so they can concentrate on their sponsorships rather than private expedition organising. 

We recommend to aspiring high altitude climbers that the best approach is to climb gradually higher peaks throughout your career so you can adjust to the requirements of altitude.  However, anyone who is a strong and active mountaineer will most probably experience few problems at altitude under our supervision.  

Head Office Support Team

Running successful journeys and expeditions is more about experience, knowledge and strategic management than any other factors. As an organisation, we place a substantial amount of time and resources into ensuring our trips are well planned and supported. You can be assured that the AC staff will provide you with friendly advice and knowledgeable support throughout the planning stages of your trip and we will be there to provide backup while the trip is running.
