Over the summer I created over 35 achievement badges for the Withings Health Mate fitness app.
Day thirty-three is Mount Everest.
“Mount Everest is the Earth's highest mountain, located in the Mahalangur section of the Himalayas. Its peak is 8,848 metres (29,029 ft) above sea level and the 5th furthest point from the centre of the Earth.
Mount Everest attracts many highly experienced mountaineers as well as capable climbers willing to hire professional guides. There are two main climbing routes, one approaching the summit from the southeast in Nepal (known as the standard route) and the other from the north in Tibet. While not posing substantial technical climbing challenges on the standard route, Everest presents dangers such as altitude sickness, weather, wind as well as significant objective hazards from avalanches and the Khumbu Icefall. While the overwhelming majority of climbers will use bottled oxygen in order to reach the top, some climbers have summitted Everest without supplemental oxygen.”

Awesome! Did you know that since the top is so remote and uninhabitable, when people die, their bodies have to be left, and the freezing weather preserves them, and climbers use some of the bodies now as markers to gauge how close they are! Crazy, right?
@Matt Soria Yup, it's mad! The Death Zone…
@Geri Coady Yeah! It's crazy! Very cool though, and again, these badges have been awesome - a good learning experience too I bet!
loved the whole series, very special set
