Avalanches is part of the game. If it is a mess, we can find error some where. At first, an avalanche is an objective danger.

In the Krakauer mentality, one will ask the question why the people climb the mountain. Better to stay around and discourage people who like to live there life. Sitting back, trying to control the environment by using artificial way.

It is not climbing mentality, which is more a model of the need pyramide (maslow), bringing many reckless people to take there life in control as much as they control themself when they climb with the insecurity of the unknow.

There is still some question of ethic. Should we care about worker who make money by making the mountain a road for every body with money? I most say that from Hilary, school was build and a large part of the economy of Nepal is from tourism. There was probably more victim dying alone in no where because they need the money from tourism than sherpa dying in the mountain.

This kind of accident is it more important than a slide that happen recently in US where many people was kill by a "mud" avalanche???
