I climbed with John and his team in 2008. It was my first time in the mountains and I did not know what to expect but the whole experience was perfect from start to finish. So good in fact it ignited a career of climbing which has seen me go to the top of Everest 9 years later. I have such fond memories of this well run, professional and enjoyable exped that I plan to go back and do it again sometime. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
