“I just completed the 2013 trek with Ade and the experience was spectacular. Ade  was great and the dialed in support was what makes the expedition so special.”

Phil M -  Chadar Trek India

“Last year, I was a member of a fundraising trek to Everest Base Camp and Kalapatthar. All arrangements were ably handled by The Mountain Company. In addition to the wonderful, hard working porters and sherpas, we were fortunate to have Ade Summers as our guide. His intimate knowledge of the Solukhumbu region made the trek that much more interesting. Most important, though, was the pace he set, allowing ample time to acclimate along the way. His daily mantra of "slow and steady, slow and steady" ensured that the entire group made it to Base Camp and that those of us who ventured on to Kalapatthar did so with little effort. I look forward to joining Ade again on a future trek or climb.

“I have been with Ade on many trips and was delighted that he was leading our trip to Upper Dolpa. I knew that his experience and expertise would give us the best chance of success and this proved to be the case. We had a wonderful trip and as always, Ade provided excellent leadership with good humour and thoughtfulness.”

“I have trekked with Ade several times. Ade is very capable, experienced and good fun to be with on trek. In challenging mountain conditions I have confidence that Ade will find a way if there is one, but also that safety will never be compromised.”
