National Geographic: Expedition to Everest
- The sun sets over the west shoulder of Everest (right) and Nuptse, a neighboring peak.
- At dawn, a sliver of moon shines above the Western Cwm.
- At dawn, a Sherpa runs uphill across a ladder spanning a crevasse at the top of the Khumbu Icefall.
- Sherpas’ headlamps illuminate the Khumbu Icefall early in the morning.
- Sherpas may pass through the Khumbu 30 or 40 times this season to carry up our food and tents.
