Last week, I shared some images of artifacts I recovered from #Everest years ago, items from the pre-modern era expeditions that I rediscovered while moving my office. Many people in turn asked about video from that 2004 expedition…I have had one on YouTube for some years, but in poor quality, so finally found the best source footage I have (still not great) and re-uploaded the video I shot while exploring the “mystery” camp on the First Step of the Northeast Ridge back in 2004. It’s an interesting camp, sitting on the ridge crest – above the standard climbing route – and, to me, the likely ascent route used by George Mallory and Andrew Irvine back in 1924. It later became a camp used by the Chinese in 1960 and again in 1975, and then by the French in 1981. It was a cool exploration of a bit of the Northeast Ridge seldom visited by climbers, and full of artifacts from a bygone age. This is the first minute of the video, but check the link in my profile (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3auMLZZ2KU) for the full version. #liveyouradventure @davehahn.climb
