Prettyman, Brett May 8, The Salt Lake Tribune. The air pressure at the summit is about one-third what it is at sea level, and by Bernoulli's principle , the winds can lower the pressure further, causing an additional 14 percent reduction in oxygen to climbers.
In the summer, the Indian monsoon brings warm wet air from the Indian Ocean to Everest's south side.
During the winter the west-southwest flowing jet stream shifts south and blows on the peak. Because Mount Everest is the highest mountain in the world, it has attracted considerable attention and climbing attempts.
A set of climbing routes has been established over several decades of climbing expeditions to the mountain. Whether the mountain was climbed in ancient times is unknown.
It may have been climbed in Everest's first known summitting occurred by , and interest by climbers increased.
By March , Everest had been climbed 5, times with deaths. By , The Himalayan Database recorded 6, summits by 4, different people. The northern approach to the mountain was discovered by George Mallory and Guy Bullock on the initial British Reconnaissance Expedition.
It was an exploratory expedition not equipped for a serious attempt to climb the mountain. From there, Mallory espied a route to the top, but the party was unprepared for the great task of climbing any further and descended.
The British returned for a expedition. George Finch climbed using oxygen for the first time. Felix Norton made a second unsuccessful attempt.
Mallory was faulted [ citation needed ] for leading a group down from the North Col which got caught in an avalanche. Mallory was pulled down too but survived.
Seven native porters were killed. The next expedition was in The next attempt was that of Norton and Somervell, who climbed without oxygen and in perfect weather, traversing the North Face into the Great Couloir.
Mallory rustled up oxygen equipment for a last-ditch effort. He chose young Andrew Irvine as his partner.
In , Lady Houston , a British millionairess , funded the Houston Everest Flight of , which saw a formation of aircraft led by the Marquess of Clydesdale fly over the summit in an effort to deploy the British Union Flag at the top.
Early expeditions—such as General Charles Bruce 's in the s and Hugh Ruttledge 's two unsuccessful attempts in and —tried to ascend the mountain from Tibet , via the North Face.
Access was closed from the north to Western expeditions in after China took control of Tibet. In , Bill Tilman and a small party which included Charles Houston , Oscar Houston, and Betsy Cowles undertook an exploratory expedition to Everest through Nepal along the route which has now become the standard approach to Everest from the south.
No attempt at an ascent of Everest was ever under consideration in this case. Tenzing's experience was useful when he was hired to be part of the British expedition in In , a ninth British expedition, led by John Hunt , returned to Nepal.
Hunt selected two climbing pairs to attempt to reach the summit. As planned, their work in route finding and breaking trail and their oxygen caches were of great aid to the following pair.
Two days later, the expedition made its second and final assault on the summit with its second climbing pair, the New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay , a Nepali Sherpa climber.
They reached the summit at At the time, both acknowledged it as a team effort by the whole expedition, but Tenzing revealed a few years later that Hillary had put his foot on the summit first.
Hunt was ultimately made a life peer in Britain, while Hillary became a founding member of the Order of New Zealand. In Japanese mountaineers conducted a major expedition.
The centerpiece was a large "siege"-style expedition led by Saburo Matsukata , working on finding a new route up the southwest face.
For example, Yuichiro Miura became the first man to ski down Everest from the South Col he descended nearly 4, vertical feet from the South Col before falling with extreme injuries.
Another success was an expedition that put four on the summit via the South Col route. The Polish climber Andrzej Zawada headed the first winter ascent of Mt.
Everest, the first winter ascent of an eight-thousander. The team of 20 Polish climbers and 4 Sherpas established a base camp on Khumbu Glacier in early January On 15 January, the team managed to set up Camp III at meters above sea level, but further action was stopped by hurricane-force winds.
Cichy and Wielicki started the final ascent at 6: The strong wind blows all the time. It is unimaginably cold. Everest started a new decade of Winter Himalaism, which became a Polish specialisation.
After Poles did ten first winter ascents on metre peaks , which earned Polish climbers a reputation of "Ice Warriors". On 11 May eight climbers died after several expeditions were caught in a blizzard high up on the mountain.
During the season, 15 people died while climbing on Mount Everest. These were the highest death tolls for a single event, and for a single season, until the sixteen deaths in the Mount Everest avalanche.
The disaster gained wide publicity and raised questions about the commercialisation of climbing Mount Everest. Journalist Jon Krakauer , on assignment from Outside magazine, was in one of the affected parties, and afterward published the bestseller Into Thin Air , which related his experience.
Anatoli Boukreev , a guide who felt impugned by Krakauer's book, co-authored a rebuttal book called The Climb. The dispute sparked a debate within the climbing community.
Semple, a surgeon, both researchers from the University of Toronto , told New Scientist magazine that an analysis of weather conditions on 11 May suggested that freak weather caused oxygen levels to plunge approximately 14 percent.
Weathers was left for dead about metres feet from Camp 4 at 7, metres 26, feet. After spending a night on the mountain, Weathers managed to find his way to Camp 4 with massive frostbite and vision impaired due to snow blindness.
Before leaving Camp 4 Jon Krakauer heard Weathers calling for help from his tent. Weathers' condition had not improved and an immediate descent to a lower elevation was deemed essential.
Camp 4 was higher than the rated ceiling of any available helicopter and in any case would be extraordinarily dangerous.
Eventually, a rescue was organised thanks to a lieutenant colonel of the Nepalese Army who conducted the second-highest known helicopter medical evacuation up to that time.
The storm's impact on climbers on the North Ridge of Everest, where several climbers also died, was detailed in a first-hand account by British filmmaker and writer Matt Dickinson in his book The Other Side of Everest.
In 12 people died. One death in particular see below triggered an international debate and years of discussion about climbing ethics.
There was an international controversy about the death of a solo British climber David Sharp , who attempted to climb Mount Everest in but died in his attempt.
The story broke out of the mountaineering community into popular media, with a series of interviews, allegations, and critiques.
The question was whether climbers that season had left a man to die and whether he could have been saved. He was said to have attempted to summit Mount Everest by himself with no Sherpa or guide and fewer oxygen bottles than considered normal.
The manager at Sharp's guide support said Sharp did not take enough oxygen for his summit attempt and did not have a Sherpa guide.
There has also been some discussion about Himex in the commentary on Inglis and Sharp. In regards to Inglis's initial comments, he later revised certain details because he had been interviewed while he was " He had suffered severe frostbite — he later had five fingertips amputated.
But he could not get David to stand alone or even stand to rest on his shoulders, and crying, Dawa had to leave him too. Even with two Sherpas, it was not going to be possible to get David down the tricky sections below.
Some climbers who left him said that the rescue efforts would have been useless and only have caused more deaths.
Much of this controversy was captured by the Discovery Channel while filming the television program Everest: A crucial decision affecting the fate of Sharp is shown in the program, where an early returning climber Lebanese adventurer Maxim Chaya is descending from the summit and radios to his base camp manager Russell Brice that he has found a frostbitten and unconscious climber in distress.
Chaya is unable to identify Sharp, who had chosen to climb solo without any support and so did not identify himself to other climbers. The base camp manager assumes that Sharp is part of a group that has already calculated that they must abandon him, and informs his lone climber that there is no chance of him being able to help Sharp by himself.
As Sharp's condition deteriorates through the day and other descending climbers pass him, his opportunities for rescue diminish: David Sharp's body remained just below the summit on the Chinese side next to "Green Boots"; they shared a space in a small rock cave that was an ad hoc tomb for them.
As the Sharp debate kicked off, on 26 May Australian climber Lincoln Hall was found alive, after being left for dead the day before. Hall later fully recovered.
His team assumed he had died from cerebral edema, and they were instructed to cover him with rocks.
The next day he was discovered by another party alive. I was shocked to see a guy without gloves, hat, oxygen bottles or sleeping bag at sunrise at 28,feet height, just sitting up there.
Lincoln greeted his fellow mountaineers with this: Lincoln Hall went on to live for several more years, often giving talks about his near-death experience and rescue, before dying from medical issues in at the age of 56 born in Similar heroic rescue actions have been recorded since Hall, including on 21 May , when Canadian climber Meagan McGrath initiated the successful high-altitude rescue of Nepali Usha Bista.
Recognising her heroic rescue, Major Meagan McGrath was selected as a recipient of the Sir Edmund Hillary Foundation of Canada Humanitarian Award, which recognises a Canadian who has personally or administratively contributed a significant service or act in the Himalayan Region of Nepal.
A remarkable illustration of the explosion of popularity of Everest is provided by the numbers of daily ascents.
Analysis of the Mount Everest disaster shows that part of the blame was on the bottleneck caused by a large number of climbers 33 to 36 attempting to summit on the same day; this was considered unusually high at the time.
By comparison, on 23 May , the summit of Mount Everest was reached by climbers — more summits in a single day than in the cumulative 31 years from the first successful summit in through There have been fatalities recorded on Mount Everest from the British Mount Everest Expedition through the end of , a rate of 4.
Of the fatalities, 58 Nearly all attempts at the summit are done using one of the two main routes. The traffic seen by each route varies from year to year.
In —07, more than half of all climbers elected to use the more challenging, but cheaper northeast route. In , the northeast route was closed by the Chinese government for the entire climbing season, and the only people able to reach the summit from the north that year were athletes responsible for carrying the Olympic torch for the Summer Olympics.
On 18 April , an avalanche hit the area just below the Base Camp 2 at around One positive outcome of the season was a year-old girl, Malavath Purna, reaching the summit, breaking the record for youngest female.
This team had to use the south side because the Chinese had denied them a permit to climb. Nepal turned Chinese reluctance into a success for the country, with the executive donating tens of thousands of dollars to local hospitals and achieving a new hybrid aviation-mountaineering technique.
She was named the Nepalese "International Mountaineer of the Year". Over people summited Everest from China Tibet region , and six from Nepal in the season.
However, a magnitude 7. One of the reasons for this was the high probability of aftershocks over 50 percent according to the USGS. On 25 April , an earthquake measuring 7.
The quakes trapped hundreds of climbers above the Khumbu icefall, and they had to be evacuated by helicopter as they ran low on supplies.
On 24 August Nepal re-opened Everest to tourism including mountain climbers. Some sections of the trail from Lukla to Everest Base Camp Nepal were damaged in the earthquakes earlier in the year and needed repairs to handle trekkers.
The Nepal Department of Tourism said by June that about people made it to the summit of Mount Everest, including 45 women.
On 11 May , nine Sherpas summited Mount Everest. The next day another six persons reached the top. However, about 30 climbers developed frostbite or became sick, and two climbers died from what was reported as possible altitude sickness.
Adrian Ballinger and Cory Richards were sponsored by Eddie Bauer to climb Everest, and they relayed information from the Everest climb using the smartphone software application and service Snapchat.
In , Francys Arsentiev had made it to the summit, but died during the descent; she went on to become a famous corpse as a landmark known as "Sleeping Beauty" until she was buried on Everest in by one of the people who had tried to help her.
When American Bill Burke was interviewed for his attempt, he noted how one of his team members had overdosed on Dex, prompting a medical evacuation even as in his more recent expedition, someone had 25 doses of Dex.
An example of a death in which Dex was implicated was Dr. Eberhard Schaaf in on Everest. Schaaf died on descent at the south summit from altitude sickness.
For example, in the season Robert Gropel said he gave Dex to his wife as reported by the Daily Telegraph in attempt to save her as they tried to descend Everest.
Effects of high altitude on humans. A one-eyed British war veteran rescued a woman from India who was in trouble on her descent.
On 11 May a Calgary physician died in Tibet, in the Chinese-side base camp. An Indian expedition from West Bengal suffered a great tragedy, with the single expedition suffering three fatalities and third, a mother of an year old had to be rescued on her way down.
Eight had reached the summit, including the injured woman . The death toll for Everest climbers rose to five in most reports by late May , and with a death of a high-altitude worker on Lhotse face during the season Everest summiters sometimes need to climb Lhotse face depending on the route , gives a total of six known deaths from the Everest massif by the time the season drew to a close.
Famous Himalayan record keeper Elizabeth Hawley died in late January Olympic Gold Medal winner Victoria Pendleton , made a summit bid with TV show host Ben Fogle , however, the summit bid had to be abandoned due to medical concerns.
A gourmet pop-up restaurant at Everest Base camp was planned this year, making international news. On May 13, , a group of Nepali climbers reached the summit of Mount Everest, the first of the season.
Some of the fatalities this season were a Japanese climber who died on his 8th attempt and was known for returning to make a summit attempt in even after he lost nine of his fingers in an attempt to summit in Among those that summited this year was a team led by Adrian Ballinger , including Neal Beidleman who survived the Mount Everest disaster and returned to summit this season.
Some the various national records include Alyssa Azar , she became the youngest Australian to summit the mountain in when she was just 19 and reached the summit again in This season additional confirmation has come in that the Hillary Step has been altered, with the climber's describing it as a slope.
One of the big activities is trips to base camp aka trekking , which can be higher than some of the highest mountains. The other big activity is serious attempts to make it to the top of Everest, and those in support of those attempts.
The peak time for this is late May, because that is when the monsoons push the jet stream away, there is another time later in the year when the monsoon ends yielding another break in the weather, but there is more snow then.
Some technology for climbing include crampons , fixed ropes , various cold-weather gear, bottled oxygen , and weather prediction.
Predicting the weather is critical; one of the big disasters came in when a storm hit during a summit bid. In modern times, there is greater on-demand logistical support available such as internet access, but also some new challenges like not offending the locals and watching out for oxygen-bottle thefts.
Helicopter support has grown and the availability of helicopter rescues increased, but there are limits on how high and in what weather they are able to fly.
Modern dangers include unexpected avalanches these claimed many lives in and , sudden onset of altitude sickness, and classic climbing danger - falling.
For a price, permits are available from both China in the Tibet region and from Nepal; there is a multitude of mountaineering firms from all over the world operating on the mountain.
There were climbing permits issued in in Nepal, these were extended until due to the closure. Nepal is essentially a "fourth world" country, as of one of the poorest non-African countries along with Haiti and Myanmar , and the 19th poorest country in the world overall.
In a permit evader who tried to climb Everest without the 11, dollar permit, faced among other penalties a 22, dollar fine, bans, and a possible four years in jail after he was caught he had made it up past the Khumbu icefall.
Nepal permits by year: The Chinese side in Tibet is also managed with permits for summiting Everest. Everest has two main climbing routes, the southeast ridge from Nepal and the north ridge from Tibet , as well as many other less frequently climbed routes.
It was the route used by Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay in and the first recognised of 15 routes to the top by Most attempts are made during May, before the summer monsoon season.
As the monsoon season approaches, the jet stream shifts northward, thereby reducing the average wind speeds high on the mountain.
Climbers then hike to Base Camp, which usually takes six to eight days, allowing for proper altitude acclimatisation in order to prevent altitude sickness.
When Hillary and Tenzing climbed Everest in , the British expedition they were part of comprising over climbers, porters, and Sherpas at that point started from the Kathmandu Valley , as there were no roads further east at that time.
Climbers spend a couple of weeks in Base Camp, acclimatising to the altitude. During that time, Sherpas and some expedition climbers set up ropes and ladders in the treacherous Khumbu Icefall.
Seracs , crevasses , and shifting blocks of ice make the icefall one of the most dangerous sections of the route. Many climbers and Sherpas have been killed in this section.
To reduce the hazard, climbers usually begin their ascent well before dawn, when the freezing temperatures glue ice blocks in place.
The Western Cwm is a flat, gently rising glacial valley, marked by huge lateral crevasses in the centre, which prevent direct access to the upper reaches of the Cwm.
Climbers are forced to cross on the far right, near the base of Nuptse , to a small passageway known as the "Nuptse corner". The Western Cwm is also called the "Valley of Silence" as the topography of the area generally cuts off wind from the climbing route.
The high altitude and a clear, windless day can make the Western Cwm unbearably hot for climbers. The Geneva Spur is an anvil shaped rib of black rock named by the Swiss expedition.
Fixed ropes assist climbers in scrambling over this snow covered rock band. The Yellow Band is a section of interlayered marble , phyllite , and semischist , which also requires about metres of rope for traversing it.
On the South Col , climbers enter the death zone. Climbers making summit bids typically can endure no more than two or three days at this altitude.
That's one reason why clear weather and low winds are critical factors in deciding whether to make a summit attempt. If the weather does not cooperate within these short few days, climbers are forced to descend, many all the way back down to Base Camp.
From Camp IV, climbers begin their summit push around midnight, with hopes of reaching the summit still another 1, metres above within 10 to 12 hours.
Continuing up the ridge, climbers are then faced with a series of imposing rock steps which usually forces them to the east into the waist-deep snow, a serious avalanche hazard.
From the South Summit, climbers follow the knife-edge southeast ridge along what is known as the "Cornice traverse", where snow clings to intermittent rock.
Hillary and Tenzing were the first climbers to ascend this step, and they did so use primitive ice climbing equipment and ropes.
Nowadays, climbers ascend this step using fixed ropes previously set up by Sherpas. Once above the step, it is a comparatively easy climb to the top on moderately angled snow slopes—though the exposure on the ridge is extreme, especially while traversing large cornices of snow.
With increasing numbers of people climbing the mountain in recent years, the Step has frequently become a bottleneck, with climbers forced to wait significant amounts of time for their turn on the ropes, leading to problems in getting climbers efficiently up and down the mountain.
After the Hillary Step, climbers also must traverse a loose and rocky section that has a large entanglement of fixed ropes that can be troublesome in bad weather.
Climbers typically spend less than half an hour at the summit to allow time to descend to Camp IV before darkness sets in, to avoid serious problems with afternoon weather, or because supplemental oxygen tanks run out.
The north ridge route begins from the north side of Everest, in Tibet. From Camp VI, climbers make their final summit push.
Climbers face a treacherous traverse from the base of the First Step: The Second Step includes a climbing aid called the "Chinese ladder", a metal ladder placed semi-permanently in by a party of Chinese climbers.
Once above these steps, the summit pyramid is climbed by a snow slope of 50 degrees, to the final summit ridge along which the top is reached.
The routes usually share one spot in common, the summit itself. The summit of Everest has been described as "the size of a dining room table".
Below the summit there is an area known as "rainbow valley", filled with dead bodies still wearing brightly coloured winter gear. Down to about metres is an area commonly called the "death zone", due to the high danger and low oxygen because of the low pressure.
Below the summit the mountain slopes downward to the three main sides, or faces, of Mount Everest: Temperatures can dip to very low levels, resulting in frostbite of any body part exposed to the air.
Since temperatures are so low, snow is well-frozen in certain areas and death or injury by slipping and falling can occur. High winds at these altitudes on Everest are also a potential threat to climbers.
Another significant threat to climbers is low atmospheric pressure. The atmospheric pressure at the top of Everest is about a third of sea level pressure or 0.
Debilitating effects of the death zone are so great that it takes most climbers up to 12 hours to walk the distance of 1. In May , the Caudwell Xtreme Everest undertook a medical study of oxygen levels in human blood at extreme altitude.
Over volunteers climbed to Everest Base Camp where various medical tests were performed to examine blood oxygen levels. A small team also performed tests on the way to the summit.
Blood samples taken at the summit indicated very low oxygen levels in the blood. A side effect of low blood oxygen is a greatly increased breathing rate, often 80—90 breaths per minute as opposed to a more typical 20— Exhaustion can occur merely attempting to breathe.
Lack of oxygen, exhaustion, extreme cold, and climbing hazards all contribute to the death toll. An injured person who cannot walk is in serious trouble, since rescue by helicopter is generally impractical and carrying the person off the mountain is very risky.
People who die during the climb are typically left behind. As of , about bodies had never been recovered. It is not uncommon to find corpses near the standard climbing routes.
Debilitating symptoms consistent with high altitude cerebral oedema commonly present during descent from the summit of Mount Everest.
Profound fatigue and late times in reaching the summit are early features associated with subsequent death. Klean Kanteen Reflect Amazon ca.
