    climbers have either taken a mountaineering course prior to those expeditions or have developed those mountaineering skills on their own and tested them on several expeditions already The summit of Aconcagua is just under 22 838 ft which is almost to the altitude that most climbers start using oxygen on 26 000 foot peaks so it is great high altitude experience before heading to Everest There aren t any shortcuts and climbers have to put in the work to get to the top Lifestyle Mountain Rescue The Air Zermatt team are saving lives in some of the world s highest mountains Culture The Making of Everest Director and Everest guide of the film on the madness of the mountain Advertising 2 Find a guide service Typically an Everest expedition costs 40 000 75 000 most of which is spent in Nepal and goes towards permits staff fees travel expenses and insurance which is a huge investment so it s important that climbers have a relationship with a guide and or guide service before throwing down to climb the big one It s not too much of an investment to go on a trip to Aconcagua a training trip to Ecuador or even a trip to Colorado for some ice climbing or mountaineering before committing to an Everest expedition with someone There are several really solid guide services in the US offering high quality Everest expeditions but each has a slightly different company culture and program There are differences in the sizes of teams amount of Sherpa support oxygen and general level of services climbing with a guide service on other trips will provide insight on how they operate One thing to keep in mind is that you get what you pay for mental preparation can play just as big of a role Bill Allen Jimmy Chin 3 Train your heart out Climbing Everest isn t something that you can train for a couple of months and then be ready unless you start with a high level of fitness Climbers should know that they can go for 12 hours at high altitude they must put in the time to train There are ways to train smartly and efficiently books like Training for the New Alpinism can provide insight into those techniques There are a lot of variables in climbing a big mountain that are out of our control like weather but our level of fitness is totally within our control Ultimately summit day on Everest shouldn t be a test of endurance While the importance of physical training can t be underestimated mental preparation can play just as big of a role Everest expeditions require a huge commitment of time and focus away from normal life work and family you can t worry about things that are days and weeks away while you are on the trip Don t stress out about summit day the weather or the unknowns either Just enjoy each day do your best on each leg of
