The line of Shooting Star on Ben Nevis. This ten-pitch long expedition, which is one of the longest routes on the Orion Face, links together several existing routes and includes two pitches of new ground.
In our flyby of Mount McKinley in our Cessina, we got a close-up view of Karsten's Ridge (at left of image), which is a climbers route to gain access to the upper reaches of the mountain. Harper's glacier is at the center of the photo.
Cho Oyu is the sixth highest mountain in the world at 8,201 m (26,906 ft) above sea level. Cho Oyu lies in the Himalayas and is 20 km west of Mount Everest, at the border between China and Nepal. Cho Oyu means "Turquoise Goddess" in Tibetan. Due to its moderate slopes of the standard northwest ridge route, some climbers consider Cho Oyu to be the easiest 8,000 m peak to climb, and it is a popular objective for professionally guided parties.
