This is good to hear. I can only imagine the copious amounts of trash leading up the mountain. Oxygen canisters, etc. The climbers should be more
responsible for their trash and hopefully teams in this day and age are actually doing something about the refuse they inevitably must take with them.
I'm just amazed that the authorities that be, didn't take action long before that. While there are circumstances when you have little choice but to
leave gear and debris on the montain, looks like 90% of the trash could have been moved.
I'm still giving the other 10% the benefit of doubt, because it's a real extreme environment. If I'm trying to get to the camp in time (and you can
never be sure), I can imagine it's hard to convince yourself that carrying an empty bottle back is essential.
