Check out this short, but nicely shot, video of climbers approaching the summit on Everest. It shows off some spectacular views going up and looking down from the summit of course, and gives you an idea of what Summit Day is like on the tallest mountain on the planet.
I came across this while browsing the Team Geared Up blog earlier, and while they’ve had a photo accompanying it showing the route up the North Side, this video appears to have been shot on the South Col. I’m pretty sure I recognize the Hillary Step at one point as well. Great stuff!
