  7. Manaslu Or Cho Oyu Spring 2016

    BUMP!! Bueller Bueller
  8. I am looking for partners interested in attempting Manaslu or Cho Oyu in the Spring of 2016. I had originally signed up to go to Cho Oyu this fall with Furtenbach Adventures but with the earthquakes the Chinese have closed the Tibet for the rest of 2015. Manaslu was an option this fall but it seemed like way too many people were going there since that seemed the "easiest" Nepal option this fall after Cho Oyu closed. For the Spring of 2016 I am looking for more of a logistics only with a few extras type expedition. I am well aware of dangers presented on both peaks especially Manaslu. I am open to both options for next spring but I assuming with Cho Oyu being closed for all of 2015 there will too many people there next Spring when it opens again. There should be a lot less people on Manaslu with the vast majority of people going to Cho Oyu and Everest. I already have price quotes and options but I am looking for some solid teammates with the experience, mindset, and attitude to try something like this. Whether there is success or failure on either of these peaks I think as long as we all come back healthy it would be a once in a lifetime experience to see the beautiful culture of Nepal/Tibet and try and see how we do on either the worlds 8th or 6th tallest mountains. If interested feel free to send me a message. Thanks, Ryan

Manaslu is my #1 choice and I have one other experienced climber interested in both trips as well. Ideally I would like to have a team of at least three people before committing.

  11. 8000 Meter Peak . . . Fall 2015?!

    Bueller . . . . . Bueller.
  12. Is anyone with experience interested in attempting an 8000 meter peak in the fall of 2015. I am looking at Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, or Cho Oyu as potential peaks to try. This will be my first time attempting a peak over 8000 meters. I have reasonably quotes for logistics only providers on the peaks listed above. Send me a message if interested and we can go from there. Serious inquiries with extensive experience only please
  13. Manaslu Fall 2014

    Is anyone interested or trying to put a team together to head to Manaslu this fall. I can't really afford to go guided but have a decent deal for a company that provides logistics for everything except going high on the mountain which is what I am looking for. The problem is that I don't know anyone interested in taking this big of a trip so I figured I would try reaching out here. Anyone here interested?
