It's a good thing my mom isn't here watching me climb. This is definitely not the safest thing I have ever done.
-- Eric Larsen, Day 44, Camp 4

Explorer Eric Larsen moved with his team up to Camp 4 just hours ago, inching closer to the summit of Everest. Larsen and crew are the last team on the mountain, according to a recent report from Explorers Web.

The quest is the last installment of Larsen's Save the Poles expedition. Starting last November, he set off to visit the South Pole, the North Pole, and the peak of Everest within 365 days. By documenting change in the world's last great frozen places, he hopes to raise awareness of climate change.

You can follow the climbing expedition on his site, where he updates readers with blogs, videos, facebook updates, podcasts, and a map of his route. A pretty impressive list of media to put out while climbing the world's highest peak.
