This hits close to home. I spent just less than a month (4 weeks) in the Himalayas in 04 as part of a geological expedition to K2 Base camp. I had to leave the group at 10,500 owing to running out of oxygen.
I’ve ALWAYS had a fascination with mountains, the bigger the better. To see 13 Sherpa porters and guides killed this easily hurts. These guys KNOW what they’re doing and usually do it VERY WELL!!
Heart goes out to the families and survivors.
Requiescat in Pace this season.
