Last week I shared a good video of the climber up Everest from Camp 1 to Camp 2 and now I have another one, this time going up the Lhotse Face from C2 to C3. This segment of the mountain has climbers ascending from about 6553 meters (21,500 ft) up to 7315 meters (24,000 ft) along a steep portion of the mountain that has been getting a lot of attention lately. This is one of the segments on the South Side that has everyone so concerned with the falling rocks and debris coming off due to the lack of snow. In this video, you’ll still see plenty of powder and ice, but conditions are a bit different there this year.
This clip was posted by the Peak Freaks and does an excellent job of showing off another tough portion of the climb.
