Sad news to read but looks like they should have not been there to start with......
The mountaineers went up despite the ban and ignored a call by the inspector for environmental protection of Zavkhan Province, where the peak is located, to suspend their ascent.

Yes but the ban was for environmental protection... not for safety reasons. We go into banned areas like that all the time in California.

If they closed our highest peak under the guise of environmental protection it would still get many ascents.
