Mt. Everest claims a seventh victim
The website further states: "A group of Sherpas are going to carry Sergey Samoilov’s body to the Camp 2 for temporary burial" and that in the fall, after the monsoon season, an attempt will be made to retrieve the body.
The Kazakhs could be the last team on Lhotse/Everest's south side. Most or all other Mt. Everest teams, after a busy week and several successful summits of the world's tallest mountain, have returned to base camp or departed for home.
Samoilov would be the seventh person to have died on Mt. Everest this climbing season.
