Video: To The Summit of Everest
Over the past few days we've seen the first successful summits of Everest in two years, and if everything goes according to plan, we should see many more over the weekend and next week. If you have ever wondered what those climbers are facing on the way to the top of the world, this video will give you a brief glimpse of that challenge. This 2+ minute clip takes us from Base Camp to the summit, passing through the Khumbu Icefall, up the South Col and on to the very summit itself. Over the next few days, dozens of climbers will be making this same journey. Hopefully everyone gets up and down safely.
