Outside Magazine article on Everest season

 

This article by Grayson Schaffer is a fairly comprehensive account of what occurred during the 2014 Mt. Everest season. He arrived in Nepal a few days after the April 18th accident in order to write this story for Outside Magazine. Juniper Fund Board members Lakpa Rita Sherpa, David Morton, and Melissa Arnot all were all on the mountain in Everest base camp when the event transpired. Lakpa Rita, as the article points out, lost five of his high altitude workers in the tragedy.
