All Climbers Dead After Violent Storm Sweeps Himalayan Base Camp
Seven people, including climbers from South Korea, were killed, and two more were considered missing on Gurja Himal mountain in Nepal after a fierce storm swept their base camp, Nepalese police told The Associated Press on Saturday.

"The camp was completely destroyed," Myagdi district official Liladhar Adhikari was heard saying, according to the BBC. "[A recovery team] could see the bodies of the climbers scattered near the camp."

The climbers were attempting to scale the 23,590-foot peak during the autumn climbing season.

The BBC reported that according to the Himalayan Database no one has stood on Gurja's summit since 1996.

Fixed it, thanks. I'm not a mountain climber, but you'd think people at base camp could survive a storm.

It could be that the winds just blew them away. I wonder if being in a snow cave would have saved them

 Quoting: Seer777


K2 is known as the Savage Mountain due to the extreme difficulty of ascent. It has the second-highest fatality rate among the eight thousanders, with around 300 successful summits and 77 fatalities; about one person dies on the mountain for every four who reach the summit.

It is more difficult and hazardous to reach the peak of K2 from the Chinese side, so it is usually climbed from the Pakistani side. K2 has never been climbed during winter, unlike Annapurna, the mountain with the highest fatality-to-summit rate (191 summits and 61 fatalities), or the other eight-thousanders

Yeah, when people think of Crowley they think of this fat guy. That was much later after getting injured. In his younger days he was an athlete and did a lot of mountain climbing.

I know rather little, but recently watched a documentary.

I was surprised to learn of his love and gift for climbing. He approached it like everything he did..absolutely.

The first serious attempt to climb K2 was undertaken in 1902 by Oscar Eckenstein, Aleister Crowley, Jules Jacot-Guillarmod, Heinrich Pfannl, Victor Wessely, and Guy Knowles via the Northeast Ridge. In the early 1900s, modern transportation did not exist in the region: it took "fourteen days just to reach the foot of the mountain".

After five serious and costly attempts, the team reached 6,525 metres (21,407 ft) although considering the difficulty of the challenge, and the lack of modern climbing equipment or weatherproof fabrics, Crowley's statement that "neither man nor beast was injured" highlights the pioneering spirit and bravery of the attempt. The failures were also attributed to sickness (Crowley was suffering the residual effects of malaria), a combination of questionable physical training, personality conflicts, and poor weather conditions—of 68 days spent on K2 (at the time, the record for the longest time spent at such an altitude) only eight provided clear weather

Re: All Climbers Dead After Violent Storm Sweeps Himalayan Base Camp
I've heard of climbers being blown off a mountain during a climb but never from their base camp. WTF! Unless they were stupid enough to put their base camp next to a freaking cliff, I don't see how in the Hell that could have happened.

Maybe someone or something simply killed them all and it's much easier for the authorities to say that it was the wind that did it. Yaaaaa, Yaaaaa, that it! Yaaaa! It was the wind, Yaaaaa!
