I certainly hope you're not recommending that whole teams of people helicopter to Camp 2 together?
I wonder if that will become the new normal? Fact is, for non climbers, all they care is, did you summit or not.
A helicopter beyond the place where a percentage of aspirants get killed, would be no more than a mere detail. Like walking in from Lukla vs walking in from Jiri. yawn
For me though, the icefall would be an integral part of the experience. Would there be that split second of time to move when it cracks? I think the adrenaline would pretty much all be gone by the time I got through. Like swimming in a school of sharks. Many people, go through the icefall multiple times on a summit bid.
Skipping part of the journey by helo isn't like chiseling holds or putting in too many bolts, as it does not alter the adventure for a future party who wants to do it differently. People should let her do as she pleases and mind their own business. It would be nice if we could turn back the clock, and everyone could do it as Hillary and Tenzing did, but we can't.
