"Although guides are calling it an incredibly safe route this year, multiple Sherpa have been injured (including one flown to Kathmandu with serious injuries), and there have been countless close calls for clients, guides and Sherpa", said mountaineer Adrian Ballinger, who is leading an expedition on the Tibetan side of the mountain this year due to safety concerns.
