BREAKING: High Altitude Avalanche Sweeps Mt. Everest; 13 dead
Officials say about five climbers are feared missing after an avalanche swept the slopes of Mount Everest and hit a route used to assent the world's highest peak.

Climbing season on the world's highest peak begins no earlier than May 15.





updated:
Sherpa climbers aided by helicopters resumed a search on Saturday for four missing guides after an ice avalanche swept the lower slopes of Mount Everest, killing at least 12 in the deadliest accident on the world's highest mountain.

Climbers declared a four-day halt to efforts to scale the 8,848-metre (29,029-ft) summit and, while some decided to abandon their mission, others said they would go ahead after talking to their Nepali guides.

"I sat and counted 13 helicopter lifts - 12 were dead bodies flying overhead suspended by a long line from a helicopter," Tim Rippel of Peak Freaks Expeditions wrote in a blog.

"Everyone is shaken here at Base Camp. Some climbers are packing up and calling it quits, they want nothing to do with this. Reality has set in."

This is very sad news. Local word on this event is that more are feared missing than reported. There is also a team in that area preparing for some Dare Devil to Paraglide off the top some time next month, also.

 Quoting: Xray J


Mt Everest is very dangerous and so are all the top summits in this part of the world.

I would be happy reaching Base Camp 2

I would not want to go up further.

Some day I will go. This is something I really want to see in this life but with no intention of climbing to the top.




Rest in Peace Sherpas

peace

I understand its a minimum of $60,000 to make the climb. Far as I am concerned anyone dumb enough to pay that kind of money to risk their life like that gets no sympathy from me.

Even Base Camp 2 is a danger zone.

Quote from article linked above:

"The wall of snow and ice hit just below Camp 2, which sits at an elevation of 21,000 feet on the 29,036-foot mountain, said Ang Tshering of the Nepal Mountaineering Association."

A lot of expert sherpas were lost, they had pretty much devoted their lives to the mountain anyways. Their death is ironic, albeit not surprising.
