    If you’ve read “Into Thin Air”, you should also read Anatoli Boukreev’s (RIP) account of those same incidents which is called “The Climb”. I’ve read both and must say that Boukreev’s tale is much more plausible.

    Minor detail, but “Into Thin Air” is written by JON Krakauer.

    Interesting article about the bodies on Everest. It’s sad that some people are upset that other climbers won’t risk their lives to try to save a nearly dead climber (or retrieve a body). It may seem cold and calloused, but placing someone else in danger because of your own preventable situation is, in my opinion, morally wrong.

    I am not a climber, but live near Lake Michigan and, too often, I see foolish people take unnecessary risks in high seas to walk on piers or ice formations only to be taught the ultimate lesson. There is a limit to what should be expected regarding a rescue. Asking another human to give their life for yours is beyond that limit.
