Two very cool links

Nelson Dellis, one of our teammates, has made a very nice three minute video of a section in the icefall. This particular ladder crossing was challenging due to the bulge of ice encroaching on us from our left. I remember it well. You can see the video here.

And for an amazing journey up the mountain from base camp to summit,  check this out! Mammut is a Swiss company that makes very high end climbing and skiing gear. They contracted with Lukas Furtenbach who's base camp was next door to us. They had several Sherpa carry a very fancy GoPro arrangement and the 360 degree views are incredible. They have combined a couple of summit days into one event in order to have everything done in daylight and a lot of the images above C4 were from our summit day. I remember watching the cameraman go up from C4 during the middle of our rest day there. You can even see a shot of me as he arrives into C4. I am in my orange suit and am wearing a yellow backpack. This is well worth a few minutes looking at. I was blown away by the shots from the South Summit to the true summit.
