Hi,

I'm planning a trip to Nepal in 2017 to attempt one or more unclimbed Himalayan peaks and I'm looking to fill out my team. If you are interested and can meet the following prerequisites then please contact me.

- Ability to spend five (5) weeks in Nepal
- Have previous high-altitude experience to 20,000'

Spring or Autumn?

I'm still trying to get clarification as to whether summer is also a possibility. The area in western Nepal is purportedly in a monsoon rain shadow but I've been getting conflicting information. At the current time I am open to spring, summer, or fall - it will depend on when partners are available. Let me know your availability/preferences.

I have experience up to 17k, but I acclimatize quickly and would be super into this

Autumn is my preference, but I am not able to commit just yet.

Hey Matt,
I have had a trip like this in mind for a long time. I used to guide in the cordilleras of Peru. Plenty of experience and a very open schedule. Where are you located?

I'm located in Richmond, Virginia. Shoot me a PM with your climbing experience and we can chat further.

Thanks for the post.

Am planning a trip to the climbing peak Kyajo Ri in Oct this year. Have trekked Kanchenjunga N/S base camp, and in China & Taiwan. Likely 18 days altogether in Nepal. Leaning towards using local guide in Lakla. If anyone's interested send me a PM. I'm also open to doing another similar route/climbing peak.

I'll be looking for a partner(s) again this winter. December through March if anyone is interested?

Hi Matt,

Been to Nepal twice, summited Everest once.   I'm interested in your idea of a unclimbed peak!

The Ministry of Tourism has a list of 188 peaks that they claim are unclimbed that you can get permits for.

Guideline #1: Don't be a jerk.
