The Khumbu Icefall is an icefall located at the head of the Khumbu Glacier which lies at an altitude of (5,486m/17,999ft) on the Nepali slopes of Mount Everest, not far above Base Camp and southwest of the summit. The icefall is considered one of the most dangerous stages of the South Col route to Everest’s summit.
The ice fall is considered one of the most dangerous stages of the South Col route. The ice fall is 1.62 miles long, roughly 2,000 ft of climbing and usually takes between 3-6 hours for climbers to navigate. Khumbu glacier that forms the ice fall moves constantly and creates large crevasses constantly. It’s basically a frozen moving river. With little warning, a large serac can just collapse, massive blocks of ice tend to tumble down the glacier from time to time, and avalanches can come through with little or no warning. It is estimated that the glacier advances 0.9 to 1.2 m (3 to 4 ft) down the mountain every day. Reaching CI is the most dangerous part of the South Col climb. In this section of the route climber’s step over crevasses on aluminum ladders, climb steep ladders across massive ceases and battle the Khumbu cough.
