The Seven Summits

Mount Everest Fall Expedition

Benegas Brothers Expeditions Began Guiding Expeditions On Mount Everest In 1999. Along With Our Strong Sherpa Team, We Have Proven Ourselves To Be The Strongest, Safest, And Most Respected Guiding Team On The Mountain. For 2020, We Are Switching To The Fall Season, In Able To Maintain A Higher Safety Standard.


This fall, we will, as always, be offering a full range of Himalayan opportunities. We will run our Mount Everest South Side Summit Climb, and our really fun classic Everest Base Camp Trek, culminating with a night of comfort at the BBE Base Camp!

We look for climbers who share our ethics: teamwork, shared responsibility, compassion, and fun!

Benegas Brothers Expeditions has long been a leader in mountain safety. We are known for our professional integrity and maintaining a strong safety ethic among our team. With the explosion in the last five years of the popularity of climbing this peak, and the addition of new operators into an already incredibly complex system, we have decided to climb Everest in the fall this year, and reap the benefits of a quieter mountain, always with the highest safety standards in mind,

As always, it’s important for our support staff to be up to standard as well, so each year you’ll see us training our Sherpas in crevasse rescue, mountain medicine, and first response. In fact, our training sessions have grown so popular that Sherpas from all across base camp come to us for training and safety skills. We will have a doctor on call 24/7 for online consults during the entire expedition.

With the experience of over a dozen seasons of summits and a strong and loyal staff of Sherpas, kitchen crew, and base camp support, climbing with Benegas Brothers Expeditions is an Everest expedition incomparable to any of the larger commercial operators. Our level of service is renowned, our base camp a true family experience, and our passion for the mountain unmatched.

As we prepare for next year, we continue our tradition of leadership and attention to detail. We don’t cut corners. We conduct the absolute best program that we can, and you won’t be disappointed. For Everest climbers we are now offering pre-training with a 10-day course in Ecuador, and closer to home, on Mount Baker for 6 days.


Damian is a very strong leader with an impressive know-how of his craft and the mountain. The amount of respect he gets from the team and other parties in the mountain is well deserved.

It was the best planned and best organized expedition I have ever joined. The guides were always on top of all the details and nothing was left to chance. When there was a need to change plans (i.e. due to weather conditions), the guides always managed to successfully put together a new plan and adapt (i.e. helicopter rides, climbing schedule, etc). The trek to EBC was beautiful and the accommodations at every stop always ready and waiting for us. The food was never an issue: a lot of high quality food and snacks available at all times. Communications, weather forecasts and mountain intel, very precise. The local staff at base camp and the higher camps was very friendly, efficient and highly qualified to deal with the tasks assigned to them. I always felt the team got my back/was there for me if needed. Key strengths: the experience of the guides, the (small) size of the group, the avoidance of large crowds during the climb, the flexibility to adapt the climbing schedule according to the needs of the group, weather, etc, the comfort at base camp and camp 2, and the highly qualified support from the local staff and the HQs.

I have been climbing big mountains for 20+ years. Having been on multiple Himalayan expeditions, with my most recent trip led by Willie and BBE, I will never consider another guide or outfitter other than BBE moving forward.

They lead the pack from a logistics, infrastructure, food quality, personal attention and safety perspective by a WIDE margin. Willie is not only an extraordinarily strong, capable, seasoned guide, but he is also a great expedition leader and teammate who manages to keep the atmosphere light, fun and inclusive despite the serious nature of Himalayan climbing.
