[everest] Abandoned on Everest … powerful blogpost on the numerous dead bodies of climbers left on Everest (contains disturbing images) … ‘An area along the northeast route to the summit has earned the unassuming nickname of “Rainbow Valley”, simply because of the multicolored down jackets of the numerous corpses littering the hillside. Even in the harsh conditions of lethal altitudes, corpses can remain for decades, some appearing frozen in time with climbing gear intact.’ [via @tomcoates]
