Climber and photographer Cory Richards was working his way up Mount Everest as part of an expedition when he began experiencing chest pains and difficulty breathing. He needed to get off the mountain, but bad weather prevented a helicopter from picking him up so he and his team members began a dangerous descent, and caught it all on camera.

Weddings Reach New Heights On Mount Everest

Where there's a will, there's a way for viral adventure photographer Charleton Churchill. Most people's idea of a "nontraditional wedding" is getting hitched in a bar, but Charleton has something even more extreme in mind for soon-to-be-married James and Ashley...say, Mount Everest Base Camp? The first couple ever married on Everest did so back in 2005, but James and Ashley would become the first two married in a wedding dress and tuxedo! After a year of grueling training and planning every last detail, the trio fly out to Nepal for the March ceremony. Only, because of Everest's extreme cold (-8°F to 10°F) and thin atmosphere, they've got to spend three weeks on the mountain acclimating themselves before a single vow is exchanged! Although several close calls with sickness, exhaustion and bad weather come close to sabotaging their plans, James, Ashley and Charleton pull it off their dream wedding in the end. Take a look at the photos and you'll see why this crazy trip was totally worth it. View Now

Terrifying Video Shows Moment Avalanche Tore Through Mount Everest Base Camp

WARNING: Explicit language Dramatic video from the base camp of Mount Everest shows the exact moment, from climber Jost Kobusch's POV, the avalanche hit triggered by the huge earthquake that has devastated Nepal. In the video you can hear Jost exclaim, "The ground is shaking" before he turns around to reveal the massive cloud of snow that soon overwhelms him and the rest of the camp. He seemed to be uninjured, but many others suffered a worse fate. According to reports, the death toll has reached at least 18 people while 61 others were injured. It's an extremely difficult video to watch, and we can't even imagine the horror these climbers must have felt on the mountain that day. View Now
