" There is no place comparable to the Diamond [up Colorado's Longs Peak]. It is high, cold, steep, a long way from the parking lot, and most of all, intimidating. Chasm View, or the Flying Buttress can get you acclimated, but nothing can prepare you for the Diamond but the Diamond." -Malcolm Daly.

Well there is a Telephone / Mobile tower setup at Kalapatthar , ( approx. 17000 feet ) , a little ahead of Gorakhshep ( Everest Base camp trek, Nepal) ! Does not qualify as an exchange really , but you do get good coverage and internet connectivity .
