Doug Rogan (USA) – Successful summit attempt on 20 December 2014
So sorry for the slow reply! The trip was amazing! The weather was great, the guides were great, the porters were awesome, and the cooks were excellent as well. I really felt they went beyond my expectations. We were the only group we saw that got three hot meals per day which was a very nice perk. The summit day was difficult but the guides were very encouraging and did a great job of leading us up. Transport to and from the mountain was reliable and on time. I rented a sleeping bag which was more than sufficient in the cold. I can’t think of anything negative to say, it was really great all around.
Sal Salinero was very impressive and I enjoyed my stay there and enjoyed talking to the people leaving/going to the mountain as well. The staff was very friendly and kept the bag I left safe while I was on the mountain.
