Valerio Massimo Everest Expedition 2009

Me on the summit of Cho Oyu with Everest in the background

Camp 3 – Top of the (rest of) the world

May 2nd, 2009 by Valerio

Arrived at Camp 3 safely this morning in 4.40hrs. Spent time pitching tents, carving platforms, and melting snow.  Now Getting as comfy as poss at 7400 Meters.

Lots more to go, but note this is the highest of the Camp 3s and actually higher than any other Continental peak such as Aconcagua, McKinley, etc.

Views are amazing when clear. We are at the foot of the yellow band.
