Video: Everest From The North

Posted on the 18 May 2012 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
Over the past few weeks I've shared a number of impressive videos of the route up Everest, but they were mostly from the South Side. The video below is an animation, but it does a fantastic job of showing the route up the Northeast Ridge and includes some of the important landmarks/milestones along the way including the position of George Mallory and Sandy Irvine at their last sighting. This is the route that the climbers on the North Side of the mountain will be taking this weekend as they head to the summit.
