Wow. You can even see little climbers and tents on the Lhotse face. Thanks for the link!

you can even see a few climbers scattered throughout the icefall. Really gives a good perspecitive on how massive Everest is.

AMAZING I just spent 30 minutes following the south col route!! It really brings the scale of the mountain into perspective!!

Wow! Thanks for sharing. Anyone know what camp or village the stone buildings with the blue roofs are? Visible in the center bottom of the screen if you pan all the way right and zoom in.

I think I've spotted a pair of climbers on the north ridge route also. With a little searching maybe somebody can find Irvine. :)
