Ang Tshering of the Nepal Mountaineering Association says four or five climbers are believed to have been buried and more injured by an avalanche that swept the slopes of Mount Everest.
This is just breaking. Not much info out yet. All sourced to AP.
Wonder if they didn’t ‘respect the mountain’.
Always have respect for the mountain. It takes several weeks to reach the summit.
The LIVE JUMP from Mt. Everest (Discovery similar to last years walk over the Grand Canyon) is scheduled for May 11th.
Other news from Base Camp, “Clues to Type 2 Diabetes discovered on Mr. Everest”.
That is the ‘rule of the Mountain’.
The Mountain talks. I’ve been “obsessed” (not sure that is the word I’d like to use, but) with the Climbing Teams every year. Even if I had the “pocket change”, I’d never go, but I follow news of The Mountain.
A dumpsite full of Snicker wrappers was found.
You are probably “spot on”.
a good place to die
That is a lot to ponder. I suppose it depends on one’s outlook and background. They know the risks. I haven’t read much on how the winter was there this season.
Happened at 6:30 am Nepal time. I imagine with Camp two being at the top of the Icefall, climbers were just moving through the area.
That is awesome. I got to meet Ed Viesters last year. Would love to meet David Breashers.
Every so often the Mountain demands a sacrifice.
Sad, I’m sure it was pretty busy at that time with climbers moving up to fix ropes and acclimatize.
Click on the green hotspot at lower right. Then zoom in on the giant art projects on the ice. Zoom WAY in on the bottom art project from the Groton school STEM program.
Then head to your bathroom for a BIG BARF gusher.
This is the blog for one of the teams.
Many Sherpas at camp 2, readying the camp and more were headed to camp 2.
Can’t find much info from the Teams “social media” feeds.
Sorry I am not seeing it.
Nothing happens when I click on the green hot spots.
quick link to camp 2
One of my distant relatives died on Mt. Everest.
Someone wrote a book about his adventure and subsequent death.
