This Week on Pythom


The fatal fall of independent speed climber Ueli Steck shook the climbing community last week. A second fatality on Everest claimed Min Bahadur Sherchan, 86, on Saturday. The senior reportedly died in BC in an attempt to break the Everest age record. In Polar news; Barneo Arctic Base lost a pioneer organizer.

The crowds have thinned on most 8000ers, except Everest where Sherpa are in summit mode. We checked in with Big E for word on the latest and there is an update in Pythom Space labs.
