Wow, after I posted the entry above this really became a hot topic. It was the lead item on the 6 o'clock news and featured story on Campbell live.

Lots of interesting things have come out of it but incident remains mired in unknowns and a general lack of understanding. I also notice that conflicting versions of the story have surfaced (what a surprise).

One thing I predicted has certainly come true with avengeance - Mark Inglis' successful summit climb has been completely overshadowed by the fact that his team left a man to die. Sadly, that's what will be remembered. Whether or not the man had died (and it sounds like a given), I wish the event could have been remembered for a heroic rescue attempt.
