Himalayan Database says 11 deaths (9 on the Nepal side and 2 on the Tibet side):

4- Crowd Related (this is horrible... dying while waiting to summit)
4- Health Related
2- Altitude Related
1- Fall

From the reviews I've read, the Jet Stream was "wobbly" this year and the summit window was somewhat truncated during late May; this likely played a large part in the summit rush that caused the back-up from the photos we've seen.  Last season, I think they had 9 or 10 straight days with a perfect weather window and a record number of summits (something like 800 summits in 2018).. that didn't happen this year.


"Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter; Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man."  Ecclesiastes 12:13

Now with Twitler taking a high end steak of this caliber and insulting the cow that died for it by having it well done just shows zero respect for the product, which falls right in line with the amount of respect he shows for pretty much everything else.- Lonestar

I'd put money on him hanging out with Carol Baskin's husband.

I think about this thread every few weeks. Hell just the other day it popped into my head when I heard someone talk about Everest.
From a Mega Man Legends island jamming power metal to a Walrus listening to black metal, I like your story arc.

I wonder if any of the Mods know his real name or have any type of contact info at all?

There has to be in the database the mail used for registration I guess.
I use my sig to pimp some bands from Italy! Check out Elvenking (Power / Folk metal), Folkstone (Rock / Medieval metal), Arcana Opera (Gothic/Noir/Heavy metal) and the beautiful voice of Elisa!
