    I'm planning a trip to Nepal in 2017 to attempt one or more unclimbed Himalayan peaks and I'm looking to fill out my team.  If you are interested and can meet the following prerequisites then please contact me.

    - Ability to spend five (5) weeks in Nepal

    - Have previous high-altitude experience to 20,000'

    Doubtful that I'd actually be able to do this but out of curiosity, what area of Nepal were you planning on going?  I was in Nepal a couple years ago climbing Mera Peak (over 20k but not at all technical) and I'm eyeing to go back, although most likely Spring 2018.  Would love to chat about your plans.

    Hi Joanna,

    Thanks for your interest in my post. I will be going to western Nepal next year, and I think technically the peaks in question are in the Mid-Western Development Region (as opposed to the Far Western Development Region).

    Are you doubtful that you would actually be able to do this because of timing/scheduling or because of technical capability?  Based on my research, I don't think the peaks would be more difficult than Mera.

    Let me know, and thanks again for your note.
