Everest Summits smashes records with 885 climbers; fatal bottlenecks on the peak

The world's highest mountain Mount Everest capped a deadly traffic-clogged season this year with 885 climbers and 11 climbers died on the peak. The numbers smashed last year's records of 807 summits despite a short weather window that resulted in fatal bottleneck situation on the peak. A traffic jam forced teams to wait for hours in freezing temperatures to reach the summit and then descend back.
