Video: How Hard is it to Climb Everest?

This video comes our way courtesy of BuzzFeed, which isn’t a website that I’m particularly fond of, but I still found myself enjoying this clip nonetheless. In just over two-minutes of footage, it shares some fairly interesting facts bout the tallest mountain on the planet, mixing in some great historical photos and beautiful video. Seeing as how we’re about to follow an ambitious expedition to the mountain, I thought this was worth sharing. It does provide some context about an Everest climb, and what it takes to get to the top.
