Strong wind prevents summit success on Mount Everest

The Tibetan north side of Mount Everest

Actually seven climbers from the team of the Chinese expedition operator Yarla Shampo wanted to fix the ropes up to the summit of Mount Everest at 8,850 meters today. However, according to information from Tibet, nothing came of it. The wind blew too strong over the highest mountain on earth. According to Mingma Gyalje Sherpa, who has close contacts with the Chinese expedition, the team turned back at 8600 meters. The climbers had spent the last night in Camp 3 at 8,300 meters. For Wednesday the meteorologists expect even higher wind speeds.

Only expedition on the mountain

While the rope-fixing team was working on the Northeast Ridge, Yarla Shampo’s clients summited the 7,045 meter high Lhakpa Ri to further acclimatize. The Chinese expedition is the only one this spring on Mount Everest. Due to the Corona Pandemic, the mountain is completely closed on the Nepales south side this spring. On the Tibetan north side the ban applies only to foreign mountaineers.
