Search Ends For Missing On Everest, Some Sherpas Call For Shutdown

Rescuers have given up searching for three sherpa guides missing two days after the deadliest ever accident on Nepal's Mount Everest killed at least 13 and shocked the mountaineering world. "We have called off the search operation. It not possible to find the three missing persons, dead or alive," said Lakpa Sherpa, of the Himalayan Rescue Operation, speaking from base camp, the starting point for Everest expeditions. Shocked and demoralized by the accident, several sherpa guides have called for the 29,035 foot mountain to be closed to expeditions during the popular climbing season that runs through May this year as a mark of respect for the dead.
