Everest remeasured: she is lower! Or is she?
While I was on Everest, the Chinese team was re-measuring the mountain and her
summit. Last week the new results were finally published, 7summits.com was the

The new height according to the Chinese is now 8844.43m
margin of 21cm. However, this is the height of the rock, currently hidden
beneath 3.5m of ice and snow. So in fact the measurement is the same as 30 years
ago as you still have to climb that final 3.5 m to the summit -> 8848m...
