Mike Roberts - New Zealand
Mike is an IFMGA International Guide from New Zealand. He has summitted Mount Everest seven times and has led expeditions to Aconcagua in South America, McKinley in Alaska, Vinson Massif in Antarctica, Gasherbrum I & II in Pakistan, Cho Oyu in Tibet and Muztagh Ata in Western China. He has also managed to fit in 14 seasons mountain and ski guiding in the Southern Alps of New Zealand, 12 seasons in Antarctica as a Field Leader / Guide to the USA Antarctic Program, has worked as a Professional Ski Patroller / Avalanche Forecaster and is a qualified Physiotherapist.
Add Mike's calm and welcoming personality, and attention to detail to the picture and you have a very personable and experienced Guide and Expedition Leader. In 2005 Mike led our Everest and Cho Oyu Expeditions, and in 2006 our Gasherbrum II Expedition as well as Mera Peak.
...
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
www.adventuresnw.com, 19 Sept 2013 [cached]
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.

Assistant Guide : Mike Roberts, NZ
...
Towards that end, Guy Cotter and Mike Roberts will be taking one very large taxi, in the shape of a russian helicopter, up valley towards basecamp with over 3000kg of food and gear!
...
Hearing from Guy and Mike up valley sounds like the trail to base is pretty crowded.
...
Mike and Guy should arrive in basecamp today, and begin helping the Sherpas set up our new home for our arrival in a few days.
...
Seems like Mike and Guy are settled in at basecamp, tidying up the final touches on base, and awaiting our arrival.
...
Guy and Mike, having with the Sherpas help, set up basecamp already, will be there waiting to welcome us in.
...
To the patter of falling snow, this is Mike signing off for the AC Everest Team.
...
Mike and I tried in vain to get my brand new sport kite up in the air, we will try again after lunch.
...
Mike and greg were busy when this was made, but i am sure they send along their love as well!
...
It is 9.14pm on the 26th of May 2004 and I have just heard from the expedition guide, Mike Roberts from south col at 7980m, where he and the group of 12 are about to embark on their attempt at the summit tonight. The weather is very clear and there is virtually no wind on the col or on the mountain above. Conditions are perfect for the attempt and the group are all feeling strong.
The climbing team consists of Luis Benitez and Mike Roberts as the guides, Urszula Tokarska of Canada, Samantha O'Carroll of Ireland, Ed Bradley and Anthony Baldry from Australia, and John Rost from USA.
...
Guy Cotter called from Everest Base Camp to report that he'd heard from Mike, they were on the Balcony (where the route reaches SE Ridge proper for the first time), the weather was perfect - an amazing day so far, and all climbers were going well!
...
Just below the south summit are climbers Ed Bradley, Urszula Tokarska accompanied by AC guide Mike Roberts.
...
Urszula Tokarska and Ed Bradley have turned around with Mike Roberts.
...
We have just heard from Mike Roberts at Camp 4 that all the expedition members are now in the camp rehydrating and resting after their summit day.
...
AC expedition guides; Luis Benitez put in a fantastic day, with Luis achieving his 4th summit of Everest in 4 years and Mike Roberts who missed his second Everest summit, whilst assisting Ursula and Ed down from just below the Hillary step where they had to turn back from where the weather turned.
