A week long course with 5 days practical, including 3 nights out in the mountains of the Sierra Nevada. It builds on experiences of guiding over 14 - 8000m expeditions, including 4 times on Everest.
Whether you are a complete beginner of looking to climb your first 8000m and want tips on training and high altitude techniques this course will provide you with ideal preparation for your own future expeditions and adventures.
In the evenings Sean will also giving from Aconcagua, Elbrus, Kilimanjaro, Everest, Damavand, Ama Dablam, Broad Peak, Manaslu, Gasherbrum, Patagonia, New Zealand, the Yukon, Cho Oyu, Baruntse, Ojos del Salado.
Still, my most memorable adventure to date, and largely thanks to your good leadership and an incredible team. Anyone “half thinking” of doing this should pull their finger out and do it, it’s the closest you’ll get to a polar experience.
I spend most of the year working as a mountain guide in the Himalaya, Andes, Asia, Africa… I’ve led and summited multiple peaks above 8000m including 2 times leading successful groups to the summit of Everest. I’ve written numerous articles for outdoor magazines and was editor of a publication in the Middle East. I’ve also published a book, From Dubai to Everest detailing our 2015 Everest expedition and the earthquake in Nepal. Getting outside and exploring new places whether it is climbing, running with friends, races or biking is still what I love the most.
