Hangout with Climbers on Mount Everest
On May 18, 2012, members of the National Geographic/The North Face expedition to Mount Everest called in from Base Camp for a Google Hangout to answer questions about their experiences on the mountain. Climbers include expedition leader Conrad Anker, Sam Elias, Emily Harrington, Hilaree O'Neill, Kristoffer Erickson and Mark Jenkins. Members of the Base Camp support team are Andy Bardon, Phil Henderson, Landon Bassett, Derek Campbell, Anjin Herndon, and Max Lowe.
The team seeks the summit near the end of May. You can follow the expedition and experience the climb in real-time through dispatches, photos, videos and more in the June edition of National Geographic magazine for iPad and on the National Geographic magazine "On Everest" Field Test blog: http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/everest/blog.
