Why Mount Everest is the wild climbing they can’t repel

( CNN) Camp 4 on Mount Everest, the final camp before the summit, is a residence most of us will simply ever see in photos: perched at 26,180 hoofs on the shoulder between the monsters of Mount Everest and Lhotse, the fourth-highest mountain in the world, the place is entirely unlivable, explosion by winds that rend snow from boulder and threw it into the circumventing breeze — air so thin it’s hard to take a stair without gasping for breather.

From there, climbers look up at the 29,029 -foot summit, less than 3,000 horizontal feet down, and hope to see clear skies, and no breeze cascading spindrift into the sky off the top of the meridian.
