In our first ever MAA expedition in Nepal, our team of 8 successfully summited Imja Tse ("Island Peak") on October 10th. Congrats team! This mountain at 20,305 sets a new high altitude record for our organization. Island Peak has a breathtaking view of Lhotse, Ama Dablam and Everest. The climb culminated nearly a year of planning, training, and effort. The route to climb the peak involves trekking into the Khumbu, a high basecamp at around 16,000', crossing several large crevasses and climbing steep snow slopes to a windswept summit.
