Unlike the appalling and immoral situation of the British climber who died only days ago, Sherpas spent 9 hours trying to help Hall down the mountain, before being told to save themselves.
All the same, this new incident at the busiest mountain on earth (has it become a commuter centre?) has a least some shades of the earlier death. (I think this quote probably comes from the “
"This morning Dan Mazur on a summit push discovered the still alive Lincoln Hall at the second step and gave him hot tea and oxygen and he was able to use the radio to call his expedition," reports the website.
Dan with one client continued to the summit....nice one sunshine! Seems like more mountaineering brotherhood classes required.”
Still a bit icky, but at least Hall was not only given oxygen, but also a nice hot cuppa.
I suppose that’s one small step on the way back to the path of moral decency, at least on Everest: not sure about everywhere else on Earth.
