China SOHU mountaineering team up toward 7790 meters on Apr 22: reported by SOHU multimedia message: On April 22, China SOHU mountaineering team set out to climb the mountain with the condition that the road was not built. Two Sherpa which are good at climbing left from the top of north side where the height is 7028 meters to 7790 meters, they looked out for the location of the No.3, No.4 and No.5 camp. At present, almost all the members in more than 20 climbing teams gathered at the Everest north side arrived at the advance camp.

After a rest of three days, the state of everybody was very good, the aim of their second march is to adapt at 8300 meters high preparing for ascending the peak.
