Climbing Everest is a multi week process of acclimatizing, ascending, descending, resting, exploring, preparing camp 1 north col(7000m), camp 2(7500m) and camp 3(8300m). In the mean time you need to stay healthy, energized and patient till the time that a proper window gives you an opportunity to make a summit attempt. This is the main challenges to keep you motivated and energized in this cold and rough mountain environment. Climbing Everest via North East Ridge is not extremely technical, but you still have to climb three more or less difficult rock sections: the first step(35m steep rock around 8500m), the second step(50m steep rock around 8580m) and the easiest third step(10m rock around (8690m). A 50 degrees angled snow ridge is left to reach the summit. At all difficult sections you will use fixed ropes and ladders to climb up and abseil or climb down again to ABC via the same route.

Spring is the best time to climb Everest from Tibet side. In autumn, the weather is much more unstable in the Everest region compared to the Cho Oyu region. This is why Cho Oyu is climbed in autumn and Everest not or by few teams. The Tibet side of Mt Everest is known for its strong winds higher up the mountain. Besides the wind you may encounter deep snow, heat and very strong sunshine. Mountain storms and fog are unpredictable and can arise quickly, changing trekking and climbing conditions dramatically. Rain, snow and strong winds are always possible.
