Free Everest


Scott spent two months on the south side of Everest during the pre-monsoon season (late March-late May), attaining a maximum altitude of 24,500 feet above sea level. On the 59th day of the expedition, during his summit push and within sight of the summit, Scott ruptured a disc in his lower back and had to descend rather than risk his safety or that of his teammates. http://www.onorbit.com/everest
