David will start on the North side of Everest, in Tibet, summit, then continue down the South face into Nepal. After resting there and regaining his strength, he’ll climb the South face, and return to his starting place down the North side. Tait says he knows that he’s going to have to have a perfect weather window, remain in good health, and have a little luck to pull of the double traverse.
Last year, David manged a double summit, so clearly he has the skills and the endurance to give this a shot. It should be interesting to watch. Personally, I think the man enjoys misery.
