The Everest Debacle: Full Report Pending

Posted on: May 1, 2013

Newsflash: Since April 27, a disagreement above Camp II on the Lhotse Face of Everest (and the events that followed) has generated a series of reports and speculation. The incident involved a group of Sherpas and three well-known alpinists, Jonathan Griffith, Simone Moro and Ueli Steck. We've been working since Monday to gather all the facts before releasing a full report. Please check back for further updates.—Ed.
