Fight between European climbers, Sherpas reported on Mt. Everest

A group of three European climbers has reported a fight between themselves and a group of Sherpa guides on Mount Everest.

The climbers say they were attacked by Sherpas after a confrontation during their ascent.

In the Europeans' version, set forth by Italian climber Simone Moro, he, a Swiss climber and a British climber were free ascending Everest when they came upon a Sherpa setting a fixed rope. Moro says the British climber, Jonathan Griffith, and the Swiss climber, Ueli Steck, stepped over the line, and the Sherpa above became angry, yelled at them and rappelled quickly, running into Steck. When the Europeans reached Camp 2, they were attacked by "some 100 Sherpas," Moro's statement says.

A statement from the trekking agency that organized the expedition says the climbers were told to wait while the fixed rope was being placed, but ignored the instructions.

Why are you getting so angry. Isn't it like a freedom of speech for any one to speak anything that they like. There seems to be nothing racist about it in the post. Entrance matting


European fighting sherpas is bad. I hope every one is ok. website


I don't get it. Does fighting solve every thing for these people. What a shame. Alas. Its the 21st century and these guys are fighting like monkeys. Coir matting


I don't think europeans are barbaric. Although there history is not so good, just like the americans, but its not important tht it was the european who was at fault. The sherpa could have been at fault as well. There could be a communication barrier etc. gymnastic mats uk


I don't understand what is there to report about this incident. Is it that important. Europeans are not angels that if some incident happens it should be reported. Get the Best Harlem Tours
