Sadly Everest 2013 starts with another Sherpa dieing in the icefall.
Reports are wide and far, details thin and few. Hopefully his family knows
before they read it on the web... Sad
Mingmar Sherpa was 47 years young... he said to have falled into a
crevasse... Sadly he won't be the last...
The icefall for several years was maintained by Henry Todd; then it was
decided a group of Sherpas would maintain the icefall. Sadly since then the
number of deaths have increased. The reasons can only be speculated as to
Sport Everest Boot Expedition and mountaineering boot for high altitude
and extremely cold conditions. The Everest has conquered all 14
mountains over 8,000m and also the Seven Summits- and has now had a
makeover to ensure continued peak preformance. With a newer sung, Alpine
Fit, and even lighter
Expedition footwear for
mountaineering in conditions of extreme cold. NOTE US
