This landform has the essence to make or break a human, to subjugate the Everest is no child’s play.

Respect is an integral part of our values at Elite. We are provided with an opportunity to make an everlasting bond built on passion, respect and understanding for each other during the climb. We believe it is necessary to maintain this throughout, not just at the start. This is because the nature of climbing means that we are exposed to unpredictable extreme and arduous environment, it can be stressful and cause people to turn on each other. Elite strives to maintain positivity as we believe this energy can be passed amongst us. Only then we are able to become more kind and compassionate towards each other, building our tolerance. This can make any stress bearable because as a team, negativity is converted to positivity knowing that your team have your back, making unforgettable memories.
