Expedition “Climbing for the Children”
• To climb Everest. World highest at
8,848 mts. / 29,029 ft.
• Our goal: $ 250.000 in donations to
UNICEF.
• You & me climbing together. Your

5
• Mount Everest is the Earth's
highest mountain, with a peak at
8,848 m (29,029 ft) above sea level.
• Located in the Himalayas; the
border between China and Nepal
runs across the precise summit
point.
• It's original name in tibetan is
Chomolungma which means
"Holly Mother”
• Tenzing Norgay & Edmund Hillary
made the first official ascent of
Everest in 1953.
• 2,500 people have climbed Mount
Everest since then.

6
South Ridge route: 5 camps to adjust to high altitude.
7
Base Camp
8
• Base Camp is located at
17,600 feet (5364 m).
• During the spring climbing
season Base Camp houses
about 300 people, including
climbers, Sherpas, doctors,
scientists and other support
staff.
We will climb Everest using the South Ridge route
9
Khumbu Ice Fall
10
• From Base Camp, climbers must
pass through the Khumbu Icefall.
• They can only traverse this area
with the aid of ropes and ladders.
• This section is extremely
dangerous due to shifting ice,
deep crevasses and avalanches
• Most climbers must navigate the
Khumbu Icefall multiple times as
they acclimate to the elevation.
The (scary) Khumbu Icefall
11
Camp I
12
• Once through the Khumbu Icefall,
climbers reach Camp I at 19,900
feet (6065 m).
Our second home; Camp I
13
Camp II
14
• Travel from Camp I to Camp II at
21,300 feet (6492 m) takes
climbers through the glacial valley
known as the Western Cwm.
• Surprisingly, the main challenge in
the Western Cwm is heat. The
valley's structure means there is
little wind and the intense sunlight
at such a high altitude can make it
uncomfortably hot.
The journey continuous to Camp II
15
Camp III
16
• The next challenge is climbing
Lhotse Face using fixed ropes to
get across a sheer wall of ice and
ascend to Camp III at 24,500 ft
(7470 m).
• This is the highest you go during
acclimatization; then climbers go
to base camp to rest and wait for
the weather window to summit.
Getting to Camp III : The Lhotse Face
17
Camp IV
18
•Camp IV, also known as the
South Col ("Col" is a word for
saddle, or pass) is the last major
camp before climbers make their
summit push. Located at 26,000
ft (7925 m)
•Climbers must also use ropes to
get across the Geneva Spur to
reach Camp IV.
•it is the first night most climbers
spend in the Death Zone.
Getting to Camp IV: the night before the big day.
19
Summit
20
•With good preparation,
teamwork and good luck
climbers finally reach the summit
to enjoy a wonderful view from
the roof of the world.
•Summiting is just 50% of the
job; we still need to get back safe
to base camp.
•In the picture 80 year-old
Yuichiro Miura faces the summit
and becomes the oldest person
ever to climb Mt. Everest.
We are finally half-way; the summit of Everest !
21
•Around $US 15,000 in equipment.
•4 large duffels to ship or 120kg of
gear and equipment.
•Not including a carpet for my tent
in base camp (climbing in style !)
Dressing up for Everest !
Do you want to try
the gear?
