A few days ago I wrote this message on the hiking group that I'm part of - "The other day, while we were on a trek together, some of you folks climbed to the summit of a peak inspite of me saying NO. IMO - it was not a smart decision given the terrain conditions of the summit rock patch. Personally if I'm leading any hikes in future, and any of you pull such a stunt off, you can be sure you won't be part of any hikes I do. No selfie, no summit, no adventure is worth your life, or for that matter your fingers/toes, or for that matter broken bones".
This picture that I have shared is of a climber that I personally know, and who climbed to the top of Everest, and during the descent ended up losing a few toes. Every year hundreds of climbers reach the top, few perish, but the folks you never hear about are the ones who lose their fingers/toes to frost bite, get hit by serious cases of altitude sickness impacting their brains and lungs, or get injured in climbing accidents -- and all of them lucky to have gotten rescued and evacuated. I personally know of more than 10 climbers who have lost fingers and toes on Everest and other mountains including the so called 6000m "easy trekking peaks".
This whole concept of an "easy" mountain is absolute nonsense. There is no EASY mountain. I read it all the time - "come join us on an easy one day trek", "climb an easy semi-technical 7000m", "Everest is walk in the park" -- all bullsh*t statements. No mountain is easy. Elements of nature, weather, terrain, your own health, and several other things can go haywire and make an "easy" trek into a nightmare rescue situation. Don't underestimate and take mountains lightly. Respect the mountains, train hard & go prepared and that way you'll enjoy them more and not be a liability to anyone.
The folks with frost bite injuries - IMO a lot of these were very preventable. Most were blinded by the summit, or desperate for glory, or trying to prove the doubters wrong. Not trying to pass a judgement here -- but the only person you should be trying to prove anything to is yourself, and your mantra should always be "stay alive with all digits intact".
