Shishapangma: Team Ready for Summit Push

It has been a busy few days here on Shishapangma. Yesterday a number of teams reached the summit and we are very happy for them.  Our team is back at Base camp after a solid rotation up high. Our team carried, put in and spent a few nights at Camp 2, roughly the same height as the summit of Aconcagua.

On this last round were able to get in a pretty windy carry to Camp 3, somewhere around 24,500’ above the ocean. Now we’re resting and recouping here at Advance Base Camp.  If weather holds we will launch this weekend for shot at the top.

Hey Jake, congrats to you and Elias on your summit of Shishapangma without o2 and sherpas - a bit late but I just read about it.
Thanks again for the great trip up Rainier this past July (ALA climb)!

Hey Jake, good to hear you’re all safely down. Climbing in the Himalaya must be incredible. As you told our group on Rainier last year:“The mountain will always be there”. Sounds like everyone used good judgement.
Learned a lot from you and Billy during Rainier expedition skills trip last September and trained differently for second attempt. Made it to the top this past August with Paul, Maile, and Cody as guides. Thanks for what you contributed to my mountaineering education.  Be well and I’ll hopefully be climbing with you in South America or Mexico next winter.
Best regards,
Tom Falvo
