Photo Diary – Griffith on Everest, Week 2

British climber and photographer Jon Griffith is attempting the Everest-Lhotse traverse this season with Sherpa Tenji. Griffith plans to live-stream and record the ascent in Virtual Reality 3D, in memory of his close friend Ueli Steck.

Here is a selection of Jon’s photographs from week two on the mountain.
