Everest as seen from the South Col
Everest as seen from Camp 4. I turned around near the red dot. Can you find it?
I climbed higher and higher that night. After 3 hours I felt very sick. My stomach hurt and it was hard to breathe. I thought about why I was climbing Everest and my family. I really wanted to stand on the top. I knew I had done my best and if I went higher then I would be in trouble and might even put my teammates in danger if they had to help me. So I turned around and went back to the Camp. It was the right thing to do.
