You sided with the Sherpa's immediately, Couchpotato. Doubt you've ever done any climbing except out of bed. Out in the real world, dickhead, ice and rocks get knocked onto fellow climbers all the time. Sure, you yell at them, perhaps give them hell in the parking lot.
But you don't have a license to attack them with a mob and make them beg forgiveness, threatening to kill them with rocks and ice ices.

You are a first rate idiot. I've read your posts and you make Ron sound like a genius.

Do people like Couchmaster, Jan, et all, read any of the 3 climbers accounts of the incident? It does seem like they have made up their minds based on their overall view of the Sherpa people and not what actually happened on the mountain in this incident.

Never been to that altitude but does it change the moronic work of pounding in snow stakes and clipping rope (fixing) into rocket science?

The slope has bulges but looks like a highway. Lots of room for two teams in parallel.

That photo is from the western cwym just above camp 2 which is on the flat. The Lhotse face is the steep one rising to the far right of the photo. It is not uncommon for people to be sweating in the cwym and being blown about by cold winds further up.

Wrong, Jan. The photo is not on the flat, but on the steeper slope below Camp 3.

Then how come it looks so much steeper on the second photo posted?

You're looking straight at a slope, always looks steeper. Been on many a climb saying " yikes, that looks steep". Thankfully, when you get to the base it's not as dire.

First photo was not my post, btw.

Sorry. I just corrected that. Unfortunately I don't know off hand exactly what the angle of the Lhotse wall is. bhilden claimed in his post above that it is 50 degrees.

Apparently they did this with great care and nobody was hurt.

So let's see if I understand your logic: If I take a gun, and with great care fire it at your wife and children so as to hit all around them within a foot, without any injury whatsoever, you'd have no problem.

After all, you are arguing, no harm, no foul?

But then what is this argument about abseiling? Also no one hurt.

So what is your logic?

And are you really sure that this was the first time that swear words were used at Sherpas and their mothers? It is a shame but I am quite sure that this happens on a daily basis in the camps.

So you are basing your argument on speculation based on....what? Speculation? Your expectation of how you would act in treating Sherpa?

I'm fairly sure, based on my personal knowledge of a number of Everest climbers, that if you treated your Sherpa that way, daily, that OTHER CLIMBERS would give you a learning experience.

This attempt to portray Sherpa as attempting murder by swinging axes at, abseiling onto these poor unroped climbers is disgusting. Trolls, of course, which speaks only of the posters involved, who typically are afraid of putting their names to their opinions.

I'm done with you, Ken, brave soul with the last name "M". You are a blockhead.

You must have wanted to be a Sherpa in a previous life. Troll, indeed.

Your (il)logic: all 3 climbers are lying. All witnesses are lying. Sherpa was cussed at which justifies violence, probably murder unless someone interceded. Frickin fool.

And you Crankster wish to free the enslaved from their cultural and vocational bonds by wishing if they would just see how freedom to do what ever the hell they want can be... freeing, or something...

F*#k working for a living, we're FREE ! Because we now only have to justify ourselves by CLIMBING STUFF !

The wife and kids will be so happy we've achieved emancipation from paying the bills and all it took was doing whatever the f*#k we wanted.

I like your worker's paradise !

The opinion of probably the strongest high altitude climber alive:
http://urubko.blogspot.com/2013/05/khumbu-wars.html
Sorry his English is far from smooth.

Denis is not that tolerant as his Western European friends, and has been into fist fight with sherpas#@&%es before. The 'dangerous' slope is 35 degrees, with lots of caverns and snow patches. Reasonable skilled people do not use ropes there and the dander of falling ice or rock is null - it just does not fall.

Crankster,

You come off as a classic North American climber who thinks that going climbing equals personal legitimacy.

Climbers have always been their own worst enemies by just walking into someone else's patch and acting like jerks. There never had to be things like the Access Fund until climbers made themselves pests in the areas they loved the most.

So (hic) yourself, except you spelled it wrong. You may not see yourself as a hick but other people's perception is something you can't manage or control personally.

Jim, I'll try to set aside the fact that you're obnoxious. But, what is your argument? You're not making any sense.
You, along with many on this thread, obviously don't believe that a few Sherpa's might have gone nuts. It's just not possible, according to you.

But you are wrong. It happened and no amount of romantic harping about the poor Sherpa's is going to change it.

Grow up.
