Everest will soon become “unclimbable”

A sherpa who has scaled Mount Everest no fewer than 21 times has said that he fears the famous peak might soon become impossible to climb due to the effect of global warming.

When I first climbed there was a lot of snow and ice but now most of it has just become bare rock. That is causing more rockfalls which are dangerous to climbers… climbing is becoming more difficult because when you are on a mountain you wear crampons but it’s very dangerous and very slippery to walk on bare rock with crampons.”

Didn’t I hear the same thing about the North Face of the Eiger?
