There's even a traffic jam up there.
Can't get away from people anywhere anymore.

Please. Of what value is any (every) experience unless you can tweet/FB/IG it. Maybe one of these “brave” people will Snapchat their own fall some day

A Colorado man has become the eleventh person to die climbing Mount Everest this year.

Chris Kulish, 62, of Boulder, died Monday while descending from the highest summit in the world, his family confirmed in a statement. The circumstances surrounding his death were not clear.

(MORE: 10th death in 2 months reported on Mount Everest amid long wait times to descend)
A record number of climbers have summited Mount Everest in April and May, the peak climbing months. Last week, there were reports of massive crowding, especially near Hillary Step, where climbers had to walk single file.

Kulish, a lawyer and member of the "7 Summit Club," climbed Everest with a small group in "near ideal weather," according to his family. He died after returning to the camp below the peak.

"He saw his last sunrise from the highest peak on Earth," the family said.

Kulish was "an inveterate climber of peaks in Colorado, the West and the world," his family said, adding that he "passed away doing what he loved."

The tenth person to die this year was 41-year-old British climber Robin Haynes Fisher, officials said.

The death of another climber, 55-year-old Donald Lynn Cash of Utah, who fainted shortly after reaching the Everest peak due to altitude sickness, was reported last week. Cash had conquered the Seven Summits – the tallest mountains on each continent, guide company Pioneer Adventure said on its website.

This year has been the deadliest for climbers on Mount Everest since 2012, when 10 climbers died. All 11 deaths in 2019 occurred during peak climbing season.

Officials have issued 367 permits to foreigners and another 14 to Nepalese mountaineers to climb Everest this year, according to a government liaison officer at base camp.

There have only five days when conditions were safe enough to summit, Alan Arnette, a mountaineering expert who runs a Mount Everest blog, told ABC News. Some climbers spent up to 20 hours above 8,000 meters due to a combination of exhaustion and wait times, Arnette said. The average time is between 10 and 12 hours, he said.

ABC News' Edit Honan and Clayton Sandell contributed to this report.
Honestly, what the f*** is the point?

Maybe they need one of those number ticket thingies like at the butcher shop? Wait for your number to be called and what not.

Something something "I had to prove it to myself" blah blah "life is a challenge I want to always meet head-on" etc etc "[insert dead friend/relative here] would've wanted me to live life to the fullest."

Translation: "I'm an adrenaline junkie and/or egotist with tens of thousands of excess dollars to spend in service of putting poor, indigenous people in danger so I can stand at the top of a ****ing mountain and say *I* got there by myself. As for my family who might mourn the loss if I die... too bad, lol. The potential for me to spend the rest of my life telling everyone that *I* climbed Everest is too much to pass up."

Bonus: Apparently they've already removed 3 tons of garbage/human feces/abandoned equipment from the mountain this year. What a literal shitshow.
