The death toll from a traffic jam of climbers on Mount Everest in the Himalayas, the world’s highest summit, has risen to 10, officials said on Saturday, as a record number of people tried to use a brief window of good weather to make it to the top.

The death toll for the 2019 climbing season on the 29,000-foot mountain currently stands at 17 over all, according to government tallies, the worst in decades, excluding major natural disasters such as avalanches and earthquakes.


Climbers waiting in queues while climbing are sucking up mountaineers' limited oxygen supply and exposing them to the harsher winds for longer.




Pictured:

The lines appear to have contributed to several deaths.

The latest casualty on the mountain was identified as Robin Haynes Fisher, 44, of Britain, who died Saturday morning at about 28,215 feet, the authorities said.


Nepal’s tourism ministry issued permits to a record 381 climbers this season, each at a cost of about $11,000(about ₦4million)

In 2018, 346 permits were granted.

An Australian climber is fighting for life after he was found unconscious on Mount Everest around 7000ft where ten climbers have died in nine days.

Four crew members from the Tibet Himalaya Expedition Company brought the unidentified man down part of the mountain Wednesday evening.



Elia Saikaly posted this picture he took while he was on the treacherous mountain on Thursday, a dead body can be seen still tethered dangling from the mountain.

Mr Sakaily wrote: 'This poor human being perched 7000ft above.'

See the video of a climber, Dr chin dying on the mountain close to the summit.

Guides rescued him, he was taken to camp II and from there flown to the hospital.

Dont know if he's still alive because his condition was critical then.

They can be brought down but it's usually very expensive & depends on the height the person died.

Check the 4th picture(map).

Choppers cant go beyond Camp III.

Of the over 200 bodies on this mountain, 90% lies between Camp IV and the summit. That's the death zone and the most dangerous part(Check 8th picture). Retrieving bodies is impossible here, most of the bodies here were abandoned alive.

If a climber dies at a height over 28,000 feet, their body can't be brought down. This man died at 28,515ft.

Sorry. My bad. I didn't thoroughly read what you quoted. Had to go back to re-check. And I thought you said "bodies" which meant the bodies on the mountain(reason why I used "they" for them). I didn't know you meant that particular body of Robin Fisher.

You are right. You & Explorers.

After watching Free SOLO 2018 I knew Whitman don't care about his life until he achieved his purpose of living. They took all this risk to make the world a better place for me and you to explore. Blackman loves his life so much that he thinks he will never die. grin
