Summit Air: New system for breathing oxygen high on Everest

Postby Brad F » Fri Apr 08, 2011 6:34 pm

Looks like an oxygen pipeline will will built on Everest this year :lol:

"With a new climbing season about to begin on Mount Everest, mountaineers who reach the South Col will be able to breathe oxygen from a source other than bottled O2. A Vancouver based company, Summit Air, has developed a system where oxygen will be pumped up the mountain from a camp in the Western Cwm above the icefall."
