North-Col Expedition

Overview

$dataTitle

The North Col Tibetan Chang La) refers to the sharp-edged pass carved by glaciers in the ridge connecting Mount Everest and Changtse in Tibet China. It forms the head of the East Rongbuk Glacier.

When climbers attempt to climb Everest via the North ridge (Tibet), the first camp on the mountain itself (traditional Camp IV, modern Camp I) is established on the North Col. From this point at approximately 7,020 meters (23,030 ft.) above Sea level, climbers ascend the North Ridge to reach a series of progressively higher camps along the North Face of Everest. Climbers make their final push to the summit from Camp VI at 8,230 meters (27,001 ft.) altitude.

North Col was first climbed by George Mallory, Edward Oliver Wheeler and Guy Bullock on September 23, 1921. This was the first time a Westerner had set foot on Mount Everest itself. Mallory discovered the North Col while searching for possible routes to the summit of Mount Everest during the British reconnaissance expedition. All subsequent expeditions in the 1920s and 1930s attempted to reach the summit of Everest by using the North Col.
