Here a link to a very cool website that was sent my way earlier today. The site is called Mount Everest: The British Story and it’s literally full of all kinds of great information on Everest, including details on the routes, the history of British expeditions to the mountain, and some very interesting facts about the tallest mountain on the planet as well.
While the site definitely leans towards covering the British climbers, as the name implies, there is plenty for anyone who has an interest in the mountain. I especially liked the comparison between the 1924 expedition and an one in 2007 for example. There is also a complete list of British summiteers and a really nice photo gallery too.
Be sure to drop by and check things out. We’re just a few months away from the 2008 season, and it’s never too early to start thinking about Everest.
