Everest 2005: 10,000! All-in!


In the coming Everest 2005 spring season 7summits.com will again be the agency of choice to book an expedition with if you are price conscious. You can simply pay 30-40,000 to the well known companies or you can go for much less on a fully serviced expedition with us. Of course you will not get 3 private sherpas to carry your water bottle, so this expedition is meant for climbers who can climb and have mental and physical strength.


The expedition will take place in May/June 2005, costs only 10,000 (currently about $12,750) and includes oxygen, shared High Altitude Sherpas, tents, yaks, all food and one western guide, Alex Abramov, who has guided and summited Everest before and brought many people to the summit. Additional services can be added if needed, like a private HA sherpa, extra oxygen etc.


See the special Everest expedition page for a complete overview of what is included, itinerary etc.

There is also an option to climb to North Col only, for only 4000 (21 days)

Vinson expeditions , almost full, book now!!!!

- Reserve and Book now: Vinson 2004/2005. If you are interested in climbing Vinson, email us. The dates and prices are already online for those seriously interested, for the first time it is also possible to climb unguided if you are an experienced mountaineer.


But we just got word from the logistics operator that the trips are filling up really fast as there is limited capacity on the planes, so please let us know immediately if you want to come and pay a deposit to reserve your place.


Every company has to use the same logistics partner, so the trips are all the same, only the price is different. 7summits has the lowest price as always, check it out here: Vinson 2004/2005.

Really, be quick if you want to come along!

We do sell them in limited amounts, all hand printed and signed by me (the photographer) if needed.

More info and examples here.

Just send an email to info @ 7summits.com with your request and we will send a quote.




The following was sent in the last newsletter as well, but for the new subscribers: here are the recent site updates, New Kilimanjaro and Aconcagua trips!





New Aconcagua dates and prices online

+Our 2004/2005 Aconcagua trips are online, but we are approaching the season fast, so get them while you can! The prices are the same as last year! Still thousands $$ less than the big US guys! We offer trips from December-January. Remember: even if only one person signs up we will go! But most trips already have participants signed up for them, so do not miss your chance to climb to the summit of South America


+ We have added a new route due to popular demand: Aconcagua from all sides! 

This means you go up the beautiful Vacas valley, climb the Polish traverse route and descent the faster Normal route, so you get the best of all routes and see all sides of Aconcagua using non-technical routes! Only 2 dates this season, so book it before it's gone 



+ Also this year we offer climbs up the Polish Glacier itself. Private trips only as this is a technical climb.

+ Another new addition to our trips is the option to climb 6000m Cerro Plata in 6 days as an acclimatization for Aconcagua. A very nice climb for only $480 and no park fees!

+ All trips can now be booked using the online bookingform




That's it for now, hope you enjoyed this newsletter, if not, just click the unsubscribe link and you are off
