Vegan climber dies on Everest during mission to prove vegans can climb highest peaks
A female climber who made it her mission to prove vegans were capable of extreme physical challenges has died near the summit of Everest.

Maria Strydom, a 34-year-old Australian academic, succumbed to altitude sickness after having to turn back on the final leg of the intrepid trek.

She was among 30 climbers, including her husband, to fall ill or suffer frostbite climbing the world’s tallest peak over the weekend.

She is also the third mountaineer to die in the first Everest climbing season since an earthquake in Nepal last year.

On Friday Dutchman Eric Arnold died in his sleep near the mountain’s summit after telling team-mates “my body has no energy left”.

A vegan academic. A species extinct soon.

Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity.

Even people who eat normal can die climbing the mount everest, so we can conclude that eating vegan has some influence on the brain.

Re: Vegan climber dies on Everest during mission to prove vegans can climb highest peaks
oh, just have a looky around what has been said around this one...

its sad.

sad people are so damn disrespectful of nature, even though they claim an affinity...


I could find a link, but the gist was, before the climb, she said in an address, We all have heard stories of novices blocking the way for us experienced climbers.

the one I feel sorry for, is the green man, the guy whose head they insert their crampons into\



disgusting self centred jerks.

Re: Vegan climber dies on Everest during mission to prove vegans can climb highest peaks
I cannot understand the mentality of climbing Everest. If its all just a boast i guess. Theres no need to put yourself through it and nobody cares,... Want to be fit and healthy then eat healthy go to the gym and do some running.
Want a great view go drive up to a good viewing point or visit a viewing platform on a high tower.
Life is a dream and we are the imagination of ourselves.

Shouldnt have pushed the vegan thing. Has backfired now. Even if she ate meat she might have died because of the stress on the body.

Re: Vegan climber dies on Everest during mission to prove vegans can climb highest peaks
Didn't Rob Hall say; "there are no heroes on Everest"

the family are hoping to bring her down...


like, how is that even possible?

Place was sacred as well wasn't it?

I can imagine base camp as a littered shit filled drug and alcohol fuelled party as they stare shit scared at whats ahead and too proud, too arrogant and too stupid to listen to the inner voice of doubt.


Maybe instead, just dig a 9 km deep hole and let the Everest aspirants jump down there.

lol, nah face, but something very strange IS happening this yr as over 12 climbers and sherpas (they never tell u these) have died from altitude sickness and a further 400 being treated at various stages up everest. 30 are sick close to summit right now and they are trying to rescue them.

something isnt right, their's never this many and very few deaths from it a yr. maybe less oxygen at high altitude than normal? if so why??

Re: Vegan climber dies on Everest during mission to prove vegans can climb highest peaks
the reason why, is atmospheric pressure, I believe, so as the pressure drops, the top of Everest is in space. Is why.

space cadets, perhaps....

Even the climbing bloggers are commenting on the unusual number of altitude sickness cases this yr, shit people are even dying from it during lower altitude treks as a pose to climbs.

[link to www.telegraph.co.uk]

[link to www.nepalmountainnews.com]

The korean guys were just trekking which is lower but still a dangerous region altitude wise.

Trust me, this sickness although common rarely results in death as they recover after going down a few thousand meters but this yr it seems that despite this people are till dying.

Those 30 up everest suffering right NOW are in deep shit!!

Re: Vegan climber dies on Everest during mission to prove vegans can climb highest peaks
The thing is, people are ignorant. Everest may be the highest mountain ( above sea level ) and only just, but it is certainly not the most difficult to climb nor is it the most dangerous .K2 ( chogo ri ) is far far more difficult and dangerous to climb, most of the climbers that attempt everest wouldnt dare try K2.

Re: Vegan climber dies on Everest during mission to prove vegans can climb highest peaks
A friend of my has climbed Everest.
He basically only eats oils when climbing. Which are vegan.
So I do not see the point here really.

Women should maybe not eat vegan due to iron. I had a female friend who was vegan and felt sick all the time and then started to eat meat and felt great.

Not gonna disagree with that, everest has its reputation mainly down to it's height and cos of that it is very difficult to climb but a lot of people try it who are not hardend climbers etc and adds to its reputation for taking life. Their still are many unclimbed peaks in the world, some are just nr unclimbable, and others lay in territory that bans it for various reasons, religion included as they are considered sacred... as they should be.
Everst is just a tourist trap for the rich now imo.

A few days ago 200 people were expected to summit in one day! Thats a crazy stop str line with everyone getting 2mins at top etc.

Statistically 20 of these will die on way down.
