Nims’ IG post also included a photo of the final section of South Col route with what can only be described as an horrendous human trafficjam. The Project Possible photo also appeared in the South China Morning Post as an illustration to their report which detailed the deaths of two climbers during the day summit bids. The SCMP reported that Donald Lynn Cash, 55, collapsed on the summit of Everest whilst taking photographs and the died close to the Hillary Step as guides were bringing him down. Another climber, Anjali Kulkarni, also 55, died whilst descending having summited earlier.
