What an incredible adventure. It was the toughest thing that I have ever done, but the surrounding beauty was unsurpassed. On our way down from the summit, I fell into a crevasse while rounding Windy Corner. I was so grateful for all the training we had done along the way and for the wealth of experience that our guides had. I was able to survive the situation and I am all the more wiser and grateful for it. Donald

I have never been so cold in all my life. The landscape was magical and the climb itself was exhilarating. The way Adventures Global facilitated my expedition was superb and it flowed without a hitch. I will definitely climb with them again Trevor
