Know the route.

I leave for Nepal tomorrow. Ty and I will meet up at SeaTac, then fly together to Dubai. We have a 1 day layover before then proceeding to Kathmandu. I will likely post next from there. So, in the mean time, I have two neato toys for you to play with. 

This link will take you to a 3-D animated flyover of the entire Everest southside route I will be climbing. It is very cool! Get to know the route and locations of the camps.

This link will take you to a 3.8 billion pixel image of Everest, again on my route, which you can zoom in on to remarkable detail.

Have fun!


  1. Hi Dave.
    The links are cool and really show how amazing the mountain is. Mt. Everest looks enormous on these links and I bet even bigger in person. Best of luck. Enjoy your adventure. I can imagine you are pretty excited about now.

  2. What an amazing link to give us a feel for the mountain, awesome!!

  3. Thanks for the toys and we'll be thinking of you in the coming weeks.

  4. Quite an amazing feat, Dave. I was trying to get a sense of how big those ice chunks were. It appears that each ripple of the glacier is an obstacle itself with the cracks and crevices not easily avoided. Each trek between camps I through IV is quite an endeavor. However, from Camp IV to the top blows my mind. The increase in elevation, ridges, and weather gives me great appreciation for your commitment, dedication and experience. Great toys! Thank you. Good luck and good weather!

  5. I was looking at the picture. the dot for South Summit looks lower than the next point. Are there different Summit's depending on what side you go up?
