This Week on Pythom

Everest frenzy winding down

Last week was mostly about the commercial/guided action on Mount Everest, (true and false) fatalities, and an encore from last year about a collapse of Hillary Step. Among the more notable climbs, an Everest traverse (now threatened with legal action), an ascent without oxygen alongside the rope fixing team, and a speed ascent.

In other news: Another Space update in Pythom labs.
