3,142 people have climbed Everest, with 219 dying trying.
It isnt disneyland, and I am not shocked at how much Everest has turned into disneyland, we definitely fundamentally disagree.
The footage I've seen was indeed from (and up to) the basecamp. I was quite shocked at what I saw, but I obviously misremembered exactly what it was - the trail to the basecamp. I certainly did not think all those people were reaching the summit, but I did think they were going higher.
I feel like a bit of an idiot, and needed to get that off my chest.
