After reading Jon Krakauer's book - Into thin air blahblahblah

@CallMeMaggot @endsenten I need you to flood me with pictures of the dead climbers littering this place.

No unrelated gore pictures please.

Now you have something fun to do for a few hours. Enjoy!

And now it is quoting time!!!

"suddenly...life has new meaning."

"Not selected for Google Earth after a second review"-- What a shame.

"About 100 meters above Camp IV she sat, leaning against her pack with her eyes open and her hair blowing in the wind. High winds eventually pushed her remains over the edge and down the Kangshung Face."

"It's not far now. I can't escape the sinister guard. Approximately 100 meters above Camp IV she sits leaning against her pack, as if taking a short break. A woman with her eyes wide open and her hair waving in each gust of wind. It's the corpse of Hannelore Schmatz, the wife of the leader of a 1979 German expedition. She summited, but died descending. Yet it feels as if she follows me with her eyes as I pass by. Her presence reminds me that we are here on the conditions of the mountain."

That is some scary shit right there.
