This is bad.

Has this been a particularly bad year in the mountains or am I just more aware of things latey?

This season I think is one of the worst ever. Aconcagua, Mont Blanc, Colorado just to name few. Everest season is in april-may, it is only matter of time. :shock:

And this one:


Not good. Not good at all.
"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat." (Theodore Roosevelt)

"Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit." (Edward Abbey)
