Everest from the Air…with Routes & Features
A lot of you were interested in the aerial image of Everest from GeoEye I blogged about last week. I received several questions about what exactly we were looking at, and what features, ridges, etc., were visible.
So, I took a few moments to make some notations on the high-res image from GeoEye, listing the prominent routes (Northeast & Southeast Ridges) as well as some of the other notable features. This is by no means comprehensive, but might give a bit more perspective on the image posted initially.
