Dramatic scene from our expedition movie: Nawang carefully balancing on the rungs of an icy aluminum ladder with his prosthetic left leg while stepping forward with his right leg. The team had to climb up, down, and over dozens of ladders that are used by all expeditions to get over the many huge crevasses and ice blocks in the Khumbu Icefall. Statistically is the most dangerous section of the South Col Route on Mount Everest.
