Leaving Camp 4 at night
My teammates getting ready to leave for the summit.
We left our warm tents in the middle of the night because it is easier to climb at night when the snow is hard and frozen. It takes over 18 hours to reach the top of Everest and come back to camp. We use flashlights that we wear on our heads to see where to go. It was very quiet and nice. I saw many stars that night.
