Everest Climber Returns to Everest to Bury the Everpresent Dead

Have you ever wondered what happens to the corpses of the fallen on the upper slopes of Everest? Sometimes they move or are buried by snow, but often they are anchored in place - chilling monuments to their own demise.

One climber in particular was abandoned by her party when it became clear they could not save her - and she has been visible to passers by ever since, including fellow climbers who came back following years and could still see her as they made their way up the slopes. However, one such climber is returning to bury the dead as best he can.

There's an enormous lack of dignity in her circumstances. It's almost like a road sign on the mountain - when you get to Fran, turn left. That's not good for anybody.
