Stages of climbing the Mountain: The Way to the Summit
Base Camp- Tents are set up on the sandy gravel valley, which carves out a
north-south swath in the high Himalayas.
Camp 2- Must climb up the Medial Moraine.
Advance Base Camp- Camps are scattered along the terrain for 700 yards.
North Col- Is the low point of one of the three great ridges that emanate from the summit of Mount Everest.
Camp V- The most windiest campsite on the mountain, usually where you should start using oxygen.
Camp VI- It typically consists of very small sites for tiny tents. The sites are dug out of the rock and dirt.
Yellow Band- Fixed rope runs up through the cliff bands.
First Step (27,890 - 28,000 ft)- The terminal prow of two gray limestone bands lying on top of one another.
Beyond the First Step- A ramp leads past a tower and a short, horizontal, but very jagged and broken section ending up on a platform marked by a curious rock bollard.
Second Step (28,140 - 28,300 ft)-The initial climb up the Second Step itself involves a 10-foot-high slab to the right of a narrow chimney, surmounted by way of a narrow ramp and a short rock step interspersed with ledges.
Third Step (28,510 -28,610 ft)- Quite common to tackle the Third Step head-on, along the crest by a series of open chimneys and ledges.
Summit Pyramid (28,540 - 28,870 feet)- The final obstacle of the mountain.
Summit (29,028 ft)- The very top of the mountain.
