Phurba Tashi climbs the upper reaches od the Ridge on Mount on May 30, 2003. I was shooting stills and video on this trip for a wild reality TV series calles Global Extremes. Great time with a great team.
After the tragedy of last year on Everest, some teams have moved their ascents to the technically more demanding – but objectively less dangerous – North/Northeast Ridge route, which ascends via. It’s a great route, and one which I’ve been fortunate to climb on 4 times. But, it’s by no means trivial: the summit day on the Northeast Ridge begins higher (high camp is at 27,200 feet or 8200 meters), and the upper Northeast Ridge is long, involved, and at times somewhat technically demanding.
It will undoubtedly be an interesting season on Everest, and my fingers are crossed for great safety above all else @eddiebauer @studio8apps
