We climber with Adv Adventure to Island Peak in October 2014 and was a succesful climb with 4 of us submitting with the 3 Sherpa. It was a life time experience as this is higher than what we have achieve in EBC. And beside, it is more technical climb using crampons, jumar and figure of 8.
We have some training by the Sherpa at Chungkung and it was really a revelation to learn about safety in real mountaineering.
We were really taken care of espeacially in the aspect of safety as using a thick LA Sportiva Nepal Evo n walking on ice on crampons are really not as simple as trekking.
We are grateful to AA for being so hospitable and boiterous in taking care of us. Special mention to Chet, Dill the chief trekking guide and Pemba Sherpa on the mountain.
Last but not least the food at Base Camp and Advance Camp was simply appetising and the TNF tent keep us warm and comfy.
So with AA with have tick off another six thousand in our dream of going higher another day.
