The world’s highest mountain by the South Col route from Nepal

Introduction

“The expedition was extremely well organised by a fun and highly experienced team, which was certainly one of the best if not the best on the mountain” – Nick Talbot, Summiteer and the first person with Cystic Fibroris to climb Everest

Jagged Globe plans and leads expeditions to Everest each spring via the South Col route from Nepal. Since 1993 we have organised twenty expeditions to Everest, sixteen of which have followed Hillary and Tenzing’s route via the South Col, three of which have climbed via the North Ridge from Tibet and one private military expedition to the West Ridge. Team members on all of our South Col expeditions have reached the summit, with two of our three North Ridge expeditions being successful. We offer you an expertly led expedition, with a high-level of Sherpa support and plentiful supplies of oxygen.

Our “One Team” ethos:

  • One team on the mountain with one leader and one aim – to get all members to the summit.
  • Each team led from the front by leaders with a depth of experience of climbing above 8,000m.
  • 2019 expedition led by David Hamilton.
  • Download our detailed Everest PDF.
  • Download a list of all Jagged Globe Everest summiteers (1993 – 2018).

Experience Required

To join the Everest team you will need to have extensive mountaineering experience. This should include previous high-altitude experience of at least 6,000 metres, combined with a plenty of Alpine mountaineering experience and preferably, you will have taken part in a previous 8,000m expedition.
