The Siren Song of Everest.
_____

This is the view from the South Summit of Mount Everest, looking up at the last 300 feet to reach the highest point on Planet Earth.

___
However, that 300 feet, so close that you can almost touch it, is a siren song that has proved fatal to many. At 29,000 feet, climbers are moving so slowly, and are often so depleted, that it can take hours to do that last 300 feet and return to the South Summit. Hours on a exposed knife-edge ridge, in sub-zero temperatures, with a 5000 foot drop on either side.
____
If you arrive at the South Summit too late, or with the weather turning, you are faced with a difficult choice, made even more difficult by the impaired judgement that can occur at very high altitude:
___
1. turn around and miss your chance at the summit, after weeks and weeks of climbing to get to there, maybe years of planning, and usually great financial and personal cost to get to that lofty point.

or

___
2. press on regardless, and hope you have the speed, the energy, the extra oxygen, enough daylight, and that the weather holds.

___
It's a very tough choice, and many of the fatalities on Everest are because the siren song of the summit pulls a climber upward and into the wrong choice. "It's just right there! I can't turn around now!" ___
Mountaineers face these choices on almost every climb. Not at such an extreme place, with so much committed to get to that point, and with no chance of rescue or help by another climber, but that same choice of balancing all the factors to decide whether to go on is an essential skill to staying alive.

@thapadepak It was really chilly and slowfall morning for us as we were heading towards Kalapathar to see Mt. Everest complete view along with some russian freinds. Morning weather was completely foggy and having snowfall as you can see our surrounding. It was bad day for us.we didn't even see the clear view of Mt. Everest. 😢 but we were happy and satisfied.
