Everest still unclimbed in 2015

Why do you think Everest has remained untrodden in 2015 :?: Is is a comercial expeditions' fail :?: Were they the last earthquakes :?: Was it the Tibet closure :?: 1974 was the last year that Everest was unclimbed.

Even K2, Kangchenjunga, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu and Dhaulagiri have been unclimbed in 2015. Let see what happen in late October, November and December...

It was because the earthquake killed so many and wiped everything out.

Let see what happens, but the post-monsoon season is short and historically records a lower number of ascents to the highest summits.

The Post Monsoon season is over, as far as Everest goes. No one has ever climbed Everest in November. It has been climbed in December a few times.

Speaking from first hand experience since I was there... The mountain was closed during our first rotation. Game over...
