-Ricardo is now back to Colorado from his Mt. Everest expedition. As you all probably know a great tragedy occurred on Mt. Everest when an avalanche occurred on the Khumbu icefall and 16 sherpas died. The complications that followed this tragic event meant that no teams were allowed to continue their expeditions. If you'd like to hear Ricardo's account of what happened listen to this interview he gave the day after he arrived from Nepal: Colorado Public Radio Interview

Comments about our expeditions:
"My adventure on Aconcagua was one of the greatest experiences of my life and I couldn’t have done it without Ricardo Peña. The trip was extremely well organized, from the moment we met at the airport in Santiago to our last night in Mendoza. Ricardo is awesome – knowledgeable and attentive but respectful of whatever skill set each client brings to the group – without compromising safety. The services at base camp were fantastic…excellent meals and live guitar music [by Ricardo!] at 14,340 feet! This expedition surpassed my expectations in every way."
-Christine Mellon, USA
