Frozen Bodies To Be Retrieved From Everest


news.sky.com

A team of mountaineers are planning to retrieve the bodies of climbers who have lost their lives on Mount Everest. It is thought as many as 150 bodies are still on the mountainside, beyond the reach of recovery because of treacherous climbing conditions. Around 300 people have died along a perilous stretch of the world's highest peak known as the "death zone" because of its lack of oxygen and treacherous terrain.

The Nepali climbers, known as Sherpas, are also aiming to clean up decades-old rubbish from the mountain in what is being called the world's highest ever clean-up campaign.

I had no idea that there were so many bodies up there. This sounds like quite a mission. This Sherpa sounds gnarly, he climbed Everest seven times?

whawhawha?

You think after 4 or 5 times he'd give it a rest. The "death zone" sounds like the place to be with it's lack of oxygen and all. For now I'll stick to my oxygen rich hikes about 15-20,000 feet lower.

Good for these guys and good luck to them up on the top of the earth.
