Iceclimbing at 6700m on Everest, Tibet

The story behind "Iceclimbing at 6700m on Everest, Tibet"

Most part of Mount Everest is not a technical climb. Near the summit are the infamous 3 rock Steps, but on the way to the NorthCol, you could meet some vertical ice like this. Not too bad near sealevel, but here, at 6700m/22,000ft it is quite exhausting..
