The amazing and talented Sequoia Pettengell and Cathy Ann Taylor have been team photographers for the annual Climb Against the Odds. I would like to share a few of their beautiful selections from this year’s climb. You can see the whole slideshow at the BCF Flickr site
Summer time and Hidden Valley Basecamp is still buried in snow! The climbing route beckons the team in excellent conditions.
SMG guides are some of the best in the industry. We are fortunate to have such capable individuals who make your trip a most memorable experience.
All of our summit climbs begin by headlamp for the Alpine Start!

Many people came together to make this climb a success. Local volunteer porters and businesses rallied to add essential climb details. The Fifth Season has been catering an amazing post climb breakfast at Horse Camp. This is quickly becoming a highlight of the trip. Thank you all!
We at SMG once again thank all who participated in this year’s climb. It was a memorable event that we are honored to be a part of. Climbing and weather conditions couldn’t have been better and we are inspired by your stories and strength!
