Hi and welcome to the fourth video in my Everest adventure series. After acclimatizing for a few days at base camp we begin to make our way up the Khumbu Ice Fall. This river of ice is constantly shifting and is one of the more dangerous elements to climb as you make your way up Everest. Our first trip to camp 1 may take us 8-10 hours, but we will get faster as our bodies acclimatize. Due to the broken nature of the ice in the icefall, we work with a group of Sherpas called the Ice Fall Doctors who put ladders across the cracks establishing the route from base camp to camp 1.
