Shot at about 6900m altitude, this group of climbers is close to their goal of the day, the North Col of Everest, while the snow is falling down.
First in line is my friend and cameraman Milan, behind him you can see the climber Mark Inglis who lost the lower part of his legs while climbing some years ago, and now is climbing Mt Everest with metal feet-replacements. Though his feet cannot freeze again, he did have some frostbite at his hands, but still he summited this year. Later he was criticized as he was the first to speak out about some dramatic events that unfolded close to the summit…
Climbing Everest might technically be not so difficult, but anyone who says it is not hard has obviously not been there.
Camera worked like a charm, even when hardly protected and in snow and windy and cold conditions.
