But now you have
Not really... did you actually read the article?

But nothing directly concerning what everyone else was on about these last few days, which was specifically the immediately recent queueing up of hundreds of paying punters and associated carnage.
Story is the same as last time and little has changed.
That's true of the story of the immediately recent queueing up of hundreds of paying punters and associated carnage, but not the article we're talking about, at least as I read it.
Perhaps "Why we are not writing the same article as everyone else about death on Everest" would have been more strictly accurate, but at least to me it was pretty clear that was what was meant.
So is it about pedantic semantics, or about climbing Everest in the 21st Century? I suspect Jon's focus is the latter.
and on a related note...
"In the interview he describes being confronted by a procession of around 200 climbers headed for the South Col, his disbelief at encountering 'climbers' who don't know how to use a jumar - a standard device used for ascending fixed ropes"
Fixed ropes and jumars are surely 'cheating'...?
Surely when so many prominent mountaineers are speaking out about the situation on Everest then it is time to write about the Death on Everest so a proper debate can be had to solve the problems rather than all the armchair mountaineers being smug about it on their forums? As someone said take the ropes off the Hilary Step and the mountain will return to what it used to be!
... but explain that to the people who live off the Everest Circus... How do you solve the problem?
