This is way up on the mountain. Once again you can see people, and get an idea of scale. I think, if my memory is correct, that they are about a day away from the summit. I think there is still one more camp up near the top of the snowy area they are on.

The tiny bump that is about an inch to the left of the summit is, I think, the Hillary Step (it may actually be the 2nd bump), which is about 40 feet high, at 28,740 ft and the hardest part of the climb.
