Mount Everest is becoming increasingly dangerous to climb because global warming is melting glacier ice along its slopes, according to a Nepalese Sherpa who has conquered the world’s highest summit 20 times.
Gosh! It must be getting tough up there, even the world’s most experienced climbers are blanching at the task ahead of them…..
But hark! What is this?
“Bonita Norris, a 22-year-old media-studies graduate”
Media studies eh? Not someone given to undertaking the most difficult of challenges then…..
“…recently became the youngest British woman ever to conquer Everest despite admitting she had never even climbed Mount Snowdon, the tallest mountain in Wales, before setting her sights on the world’s highest summit.”
So your average untrained rambler can still amble up its slopes then?
No need to panic yet.
