Mike was the Expedition Leader for our successful Everest 2010, 2011 and 2012 expeditions, guided a private Everest client in 2013 and led AC trips on Elbrus, in Europe and on Kilimanjaro in 2011. He achieved back to back summits of Everest and Lhotse in 2013. He recently led our Cho Oyu 2013 expedition, and also Carstensz November 2013 climb where he summitted Carstensz twice! The significance of this is that Mike has now climbed all the Seven Summits and he has thus also climbed them all TWICE. Mike guided on our Three Peaks Nepal 2009 expedition and our Cho Oyu 2010 expedition alongside Mike Roberts and is now an IFMGA qualified guide in 2013.

Seven Summits: To Russia With Love – Mt. Elbrus | AdventuresNW
Our lead guide was famed climber Mike Roberts of Adventure Consultants.
We were the lemmings - he was the sound of the sea. Mike is modest and soft-spoken, but his laugh is big, contagious, and somehow reveals the accent of his native New Zealand. Our team was rounded out by Alex, our local Russian guide. Alex had made a name for himself by soloing K2 the year before. Mike and Richard provided medications. Mike called for a break and suggested we put on our heavy summit parkas, over pants, balaclavas, and mittens. "We are trying to persuade him to continue on," Mike said, having seen climbers work through such conditions many times, believing Richard might do the same. Hearing this, Mike asked if Richard would feel better continuing on if they were roped together, a technique called "short roping. Richard said he would, so Mike started rigging the line. At some point Mike looked at Ed and didn't like what he saw. Then Mike turned back to Richard, who had a new problem. "Right, we will remove the boot and warm the foot," Mike said, instructing Richard to lay on his back and place the afflicted foot under Mikes upper layers, against the bare flesh of his stomach. "Keep this somewhere warm," Mike said. I stuffed it under my parka. Then I glanced back at Ed and noticed he was impossibly tangled up in the process of putting on his over-pants, the crampons of his right foot piercing them in three places. I backed his foot out and opened the leg zippers completely.
