+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 first mountaineering site to mention it on the forum.

The new height according to the Chinese is now 8844.43m (29,017.15ft)with a 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...
