  • My Final Everest Blog - Christian Kober - Everest Expedition 2012 - Daily Dispatches
    well have been in the tents when the avalanche happened On the way Huseyin had dropped out with breathing difficulties and tiredness It would be the end of his Everest challenge 18th May Today as it turned out was the starting point of our summit push Climbing from Camp 3 at 7100m to the South Col at almost 8000m then leaving soon after for the summit at 9pm the same day Most groups have a good rest at the South Col during the afternoon but this year there were so many people going up at the same time we were literally queuing up to make footsteps This meant we didn t get to the South Col until 5pm couldn t rest for more than an hour and had to get ready again at 8pm for the Summit which would be a climb through the night and all the next day Not ideal preparations for high altitude climbing on top of the world Any rest we did have was hard to come by the winds were funnelling through the Col and battering our tents At 8pm Bob and Mark couldn t believe we would actually be going up in those winds I told them to get ready we d surely be leaving in 30 minutes Sure enough we were and we were ready by 9pm and out in the in wind Hundreds of other people were already out and progress was painfully slow After 12 hours of climbing I was too tired to keep going and at about 9 30am at 8700m I sat down and didn t get up again for an hour and half In fact I even slept there for about an hour before going back down Its painfully disappointing not to have summited after all this time

  • Preparations for the final attempt - Christian Kober - Everest Expedition 2012 - Daily Dispatches
    calories too After three nights at the Ama Dablam Garden View we reluctantly headed back up to base camp From here on in we would only be going up all the way up to the top of Everest 5150m above us 14th May Back at Base Camp now for 2 days and we ve finally been given the go ahead for the summit Fixed ropes above the South Col Camp 4 8000m still haven t been fixed but they are on track to be done by 18th which means the earliest we could summit would be 19th We ve also just found out that the weather is likely to be very bad from 21st 27th so that leaves only 2 days for everyone waiting at base camp to be ready and get to the top So we are leaving Base Camp on 16th May spending a night each at Camp 2 3 4 South Col and then making a night early morning push for the summit on 18th 19th and then back to Base Camp a few days later as Everest Summiteers with luck Thanks for all the comments on the blog sorry I haven t replied to them as

  • Everest Camp III- Christian Kober - Everest Expedition 2012 - Daily Dispatches
    altitude and the lack of energy from good food I m just glad we don t have to go higher today The next day I m on about 50 energy which is just about enough to get to Camp 3 at 7100m in 8 hours of steep laborious climbing Its the highest place I ve ever been and almost 1000m higher than I ve ever slept before We have 5 tents cut into the side of the Lhotse face looking up at the South Summit of Everest Our Sherpas have already been here to set up the site and considering the location its very comfortable People have been known to fall to their deaths here just leaving their tents to relieve themselves Sleeping is very intermittent I ve developed the notorious Khumbu Cough a deep and explosive unstoppable cough Its not nice to wake up thinking its early morning but in reality still on 9pm At about 8am we have soup and marshmallow pies for breakfast and leave soon after Its about 20c and standing still leaves you on the verge of frostbite Luckily getting down is quicker than going up After 3 hours we re back at Camp 2 and all decide to stay another night its not worth wasting energy to get back a bit earlier and climb down through the Ice Fall in the afternoon the most dangerous time for avalanches and ice falls The next morning we head down by the time we get back to Base Camp I m exhausted and wondering how hard the final push to the summit is going to be Camp 3 is only half way from Base Camp to the top of Everest I m beginning to realise why everyone uses supplementary oxygen to get to the top For now
