North Col Everest (8,848m.) Expedition


Mt. Everest expedition from the Tibet side is becoming more popular day by day due to low cost of royalty and other essential mountaineering services. The easy route to the summit from the North side of the mountain is also a key factor in increased popularity which involves less technical challenges than the South side of Mt. Everest. Advanced Base camp (6,400 meter) to North side expedition is set under the shadow of Changte exposing views of virtually the whole route.  From here onwards we will be setting up four camps before making a bid to the summit.

Camp 1 is established on the North Col (7000m).  There is a long reasonably angled snow slope to 7,400m. where camp 2 is set up on snow.  The route from C2 to C3 is up a series of rock and shingle steps, again all very easy terrain to walk on.  Camp 3 will be at 7,900 m. on rock. From C3 the route traverses across a series of rock steps and then up medium angled snow slopes and then again on mixed rock and snow to the camp 4 at 8400m.  This camp is normally on rock, but some years there is snow cover here.  There will be a fixed rope from the nerve to this point. This route is traditionally very windy, especially between C2 and C3.  The summit day is from C4. The route is up mixed rock and snow steps to the NE ridge. These steps are quite steep in places and require considerable care especially as you now have all of your bulky clothing and oxygen equipment on.
