Several years ago, I made a couple of posts with interactive panoramas of Everest’s Northeast Ridge.

One, of the shot above, was just a fun one for people to be able to zoom in and see in detail the challenges posed by the famed First, Second, and Third Steps.

The second set of images related to a discussion on Noel Odell’s famous final sighting of Mallory & Irvine in 1924. Shot from roughly Odell’s location when he made that sighting, my images from 2004 show what he would have seen.

Unfortunately, while transitioning my websites a few months ago, those files were lost. I just realized it, and have re-uploaded them to the servers. You can find them and their related blog posts at the links below:

Enjoy!
