The third stage of the climb takes you from Camp I at 19,500 feet to three more camps. The highest is Camp IV or Camp 4, perched at an elevation of 26,000 feet. In fact it is one of the most difficult parts of the climb is the Lhotse Face, a steep rock wall covered in ice. Camp II lies at the base of the Lhotse Face, to ascend this ice-covered wall which rises up 3,700 feet, climbers use crampons and ropes attached to the ice. Crampons are spikes that attach to the climber’s boots. Climbers kick the crampons into the ice to get a foothold and then pull themselves up on the rope. Camp III is on a narrow ledge halfway up the Lhotse Face, on a clear day, the view is astounding, that is a once and a lifetime view. wrote one climber. From Camp III, you ascend another 1,500 feet to the South Col, this is between the Lhotse Face and the summit of Mount Everest, the location of Camp IV lays there. At 26,000 feet, Camp IV is in the Death Zone. At this elevation, it is very difficult for you to breathe. The lack of oxygen puts tremendous stress on your body, and climbers are at great risk of experiencing altitude sickness. With so little oxygen reaching your brains. Most climbers breathe bottled oxygen to survive, but even then it is hard to remain at this altitude for more than two or three days. If the weather turns bad, most of yall with turn back and come home.
