Crowded Mountain

It seems you just can’t go anywhere to be by yourself these days.  Not even Mount Everest.

Outside Magazine reports that at the start of the spring summit season last weekend there were 300 people on the mountain.

I know the feeling of going up a mountain in the Lake District and finding the summit crowded with people, that can be frustrating enough when you want to take photos of the view but to mount an expedition up the world’s highest mountain and have to queue for the summit – that’s frustration, even for us English who have made queuing an artform.
