Name Let's plan to climb Mt Everest... anyone?

I'm looking for anyone with aspirations to climb Mt Everest within the next 3 years. Of course you don't have to be fit and ready right now, but you'd have to be willing to begin preparation.

I've already climbed Kili and plan to climb Aconcagua nearly next year. After that I'd like to progress to some of the pure Alpine summits, such as Mt Blanc, Mt Elbrus, Island Peak (Himalaya), and finally Ama Dablam.

I'm flexible if you want to push it out another year or so, or even bring it closer a year (maybe). So let me know if you're even remotely interested so we can at least discuss it. The climb may not eventuate, but I'd like to get the conversation started with enthusiastic adventurers.

Vanessa Hi Todd & Lauren, I'm still keen to join on at least some of these treks - I don't know if i'd be able to train before the Aconcagua climb in Jan but would be keen to do some climbs / treks in 2011. Vanessa

Todd Hey Vanessa; great to hear from you. Maybe we should get together for Mont Blanc in 2011. Have never been to Chamonix, but it sounds like a nice place to call 'lower base camp' :)

vagabond There's this Mont Blanc course with Adventure Consultants (famous guiding company for anyone that reads mtn literature). See this link http://www.adventureconsultants.com/adventure/MontBlancCourseAscent/

Vanessa Mt Blanc sounds great - would be a first for me too. If don't manage the mountain there's always the cable car back to Chamonix :P vagabond - the climbalaska course looks amazing (and slightly terrifying...) thanks for the link. Would definitely want to do some high altitude training to adjust - last time I got a bit headachy above 4500m - might have to head to NZ for that. :)

Todd Hey Christopher. It's just an idea at this stage, but I know I'm pretty serious about working up to it. What are your thoughts? Do you have previous mountaineering experience? Mike (mpreihs) and I have trekked Kili and we're keen to do Aconcagua next. I know that's a far cry from Everest, but it's a start.

christopher_new Whoops, wrong window. Todd, got your email this morning. When you have a moment could you email me your private email address? I wanted to talk in a bit more detail and your last email came across under noreply@globetrooper.com. Thanks, mate! - c

mpreihs Hi Todd, This has been sitting in the back of my mind for a while. I have done Kili and the trek to the Everest Base Camp. Aconcagua is next. Maybe we can hook up and do it winter 2011? That would be 2 down - 5 to go :)
