Politics Affect Climbers

Politics probably affect everything. In this case, politics in China pushed more climbers onto Manaslu and maybe onto the Nepalese side of Everest leading to more deaths on those mountains this year.

"The climbers killed in a weekend avalanche in the Himalayas were part of a crush of mountaineers who came to the slope because of heightened tensions between Chinese authorities and Tibetans."
