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.

Any word on this full report? I'd love to read Alpinist's take. and a thorough unbiased view of what happened.

Ueli's interview (in German): www.srf.ch/player/tv/news-clip/video/ueli-steck-spricht-ueber-den-eklat-am-mount-everest?id=ac75be38-3ec2-4ec9-af10-ce8a29d871a4 Hope that this event will not stop him and his rope friends to further venture in the Khumbu Valley for new lines.

as Oswald Oelz stated last week in a Swiss Newspaper, Ueli, Simone and Jon were the victims of the commercialisation of the Everest.
