The North Col and camp 1 are located on top of this wall. Mellow climbing, good skiing.

The highest established campground on Earth. North Face of Everest. When I think of this place, I remember surreal views (looking down onto the tops of clouds as they flash with lightning) and tents pitched on a steep rock slab so when you lay down you slide to the bottom of the tent in a crumpled mess 😆. #Quomolangma

The North Ridge of Everest on the left. The massive North Face on the right. It is hard to comprehend how gigantic this wall is. 10,000 vertical feet, a rock wall 2 miles tall. An amazing sight.

This photo is looking down the Raiphu La at the Kangshung Glacier. The terminus of Fantasy Ridge is on the right. Fantasy Ridge is the only unclimbed ridge on Everest

Advanced Base Camp on the North side of Everest. The summit is visible from camp which helps to keep morale high. It was so cool to look up there and see the plume coming off the top.

Everest North Ridge 2004. The team had made an agreement to use the fixed ropes. Even though the terrain was easy we still had to use them to prevent any slips from turning into falls. This was good practice. A couple years later I had a partner that was "too cool" to use fixed ropes and he fell a long way. We rescued him and his trip was over. His life was nearly over too.

The North Ridge snow ramp stops at 7500 meters. Camp 2 is located in the rocks above the snow ramp 7600-7800 meters. The route thens traverses to a couloir leading up to highcamp on the rock slabs of the North Face at 8300 meters.

Here is my buddy George topping out the 2nd Step. The original ladder placed by the Chinese in 1975 was a bit short and required some sweet rock moves to top out. Top stepping the ladder, a big airy step out right onto a little edge, a mitten jam in a wide crack beside an overhanging boulder, backstep onto a good ledge then pull the lip. A short but fun boulder problem way off the deck. A new ladder was placed beside the old one and now bypasses those moves, allowing for more rapid progress.

I've always liked this image, even though it is too dark and out of focus. If you know where to look you can see a climber topping out the 1st Step, and more climbers approaching Mushroom Rock and the sketchy traverse from Mushroom Rock to the bottom of the 2nd Step. The photo was taken from atop the 2nd Step. Northeast Ridge 8650 meters.

This is a blurry image of my buddies climbing the second step. It was probably 5-5:30 am, the sun was coming up and I was trying to take pictures without the flash.

I posted a photo a couple days back of the summit section of Everest's Northeast Ridge, in the clouds. Here is the same photo taken 2 years later with "the view"
