Interview with Ryan Waters, “drama on Everest does not seem to dampen the demand”

Exweb interview headsup

Veteran of 14 mountaineering expeditions on 8000 m peaks, Ryan Waters has climbed Everest from both Tibet and Nepal. Last spring he was in basecamp during the earthquake, providing first aid in the devastated lower sections.

He returned to Nepal that fall when tourism was scarce; to help locally, scale some unclimbed lines, and most importantly to show that visiting Nepal was safe again.

Ryan told Explorersweb earlier that his team will not return to Everest this year, which he confirms in this heads-up interview kicking off the 2016 Himalaya season.
