GSG Guide Kelvin Nguyen Successful Summits // Ama Dablam x Island Peak

We couldn’t be more stoked for this guy right here! GSG Guide @kelvin_artdoors successfully lead a team up the stunning peaks of Ama Dablam (6,812 m/ 22,349’) and Island Peak (6,189 m/ 20,305’) located in the Himalaya/ Eastern Nepal this October. Both mountains reside outside of the town Pangboche, the gateway to Everest. Kelvin’s success was a culmination of years of dedication and hard work put into various mountain ranges all over the world. We can’t think of a more humble and deserving guy to congratulate. Waita get after your dreams and send it Kelvin!
