A third contributing factor came with leaders Rob Hall and Scott Fischer deciding to work together to reach the summit on the same bid day.
In doing so, both decided that one sherpa from each team would be designated to set fixed ropes leading to the summit.
Chosen were Lopsang Jangbu of MM and Ang Dorje of AC. However, on Summit Day, Lopsang Jangbu did not begin ascending before the team to assist Dorje with the ropes.
Instead, he short-roped Sandy Pittman for the ascent, causing him to climb at a slow rate. Consequently, Ang Dorje refused to work alone.
Later, Krakauer would interview Jangbu to ask him why he veered from the designated plan. He stated that, at first, he thought he had short-roped another climber who was lagging, and when he realized it was Sandy an hour later, he unclipped her.
Later, he would change his story to say that Pittman reaching the summit was important to Fischer, as it would come with publicity and increased clientele.
Because she was not a significantly experienced climber, he thought short-roping her would increase her chances of reaching the top if he escorted her at a steady rate past the others.
Jangbu told Krakauer that Fischer did not ask him to do so. Both Jangbu and Pittman stated that the short-roping did not last for more than an hour.
But various other climbers attested to it lasting up to five hours. Ultimately, as a result of the fixed ropes not being set, a bottleneck of climbers accumulated towards the summit, slowing everyone down.
A turn-around time of p. Still, some climbers were delayed because of the bottleneck, including Krakauer who had been ahead of the team from the start.
Eventually, Anatoli Boukreev and Neal Beidleman assumed the responsibility of the ropes, and it took quite a while to set them. By this time, a storm had been brewing below them.
Instead of turning clients around, because the guides knew they would not reach the summit before p. This was the fourth contributing factor.
Those ahead of the line summited Krakauer was one of them. They turned around and began their descent, passing Rob Hall and the rest of the teams who were still on their way up.
These descending climbers headed right into the storm. Here, we meet the fifth contributing factor. Boukreev decided to make an early ascent. Since working for Scott Fischer, Boukreev had a habit of climbing ahead of clients and reaching the summit on his own.
His reasoning for this was that he felt guides were not there to babysit climbers, and he felt that those who chose to go to the mountain should be able to take care of themselves.
In fact, Fischer and Boukreev got into a few arguments over the matter. On May 10, , the situation was no different. On this day, after reaching the summit, he quickly descended before the MM team made it to the top, leaving them to descend slowly with little help.
Ideally, if Boukreev had descended with the team and been carrying supplemental oxygen, he may have been able to assist them in descending much faster, possibly making it to camp before the storm erupted into a fierce rage.
Later, Boukreev would state that he descended because he wanted to be fresh and reach camp so he could assist in a rescue if needed in case something happened to the descending climbers.

Rob Hall also ignored the turn-around time, staying behind with client Doug Hansen, who was having trouble moving up the mountain. Hansen had tried to summit the previous year and failed, which is probably why Hall made such an effort to help him up despite the late hour.
Hall and Hansen did not summit until p. It was a serious lapse in judgment on Hall's part—one which would cost both men their lives.
By p. As the storm raged on, 17 people were caught on the mountain, a perilous position to be in after dark, but especially so during a storm with high winds, zero visibility, and a wind chill of 70 below zero.
Climbers were also running out of oxygen. A group accompanied by guides Beidleman and Groom headed down the mountain, including climbers Yasuko Namba, Sandy Pittman, Charlotte Fox, Lene Gammelgaard, Martin Adams, and Klev Schoening.
They encountered Rob Hall's client Beck Weathers on their way down. Weathers was stranded at 27, feet after being stricken by temporary blindness, which had prevented him from summitting.
He joined the group. After a very slow and difficult descent, the group came within vertical feet of Camp 4, but the driving wind and snow made it impossible to see where they were going.
They huddled together to wait out the storm. At midnight, the sky cleared briefly, allowing guides to catch sight of the camp.
The group headed off toward camp, but four were too incapacitated to move—Weathers, Namba, Pittman, and Fox.
The others made it back and sent help for the four stranded climbers. Mountain Madness guide Anatoli Boukreev was able to help Fox and Pittman back to camp, but could not manage the nearly comatose Weathers and Namba, especially in the middle of a storm.
They were deemed beyond help and were therefore left behind. Still stranded high on the mountain were Rob Hall and Doug Hansen at the top of the Hillary Step near the summit.
Hansen was unable to go on; Hall tried to bring him down. During their unsuccessful attempt to descend, Hall looked away for just a moment and when he looked back, Hansen was gone.
Hansen had likely fallen over the edge. Hall maintained radio contact with Base Camp through the night and even spoke with his pregnant wife, who was patched through from New Zealand by satellite phone.
Guide Andy Harris, who was caught in the storm at the South Summit, had a radio and was able to hear Hall's transmissions. Harris is believed to have gone up to bring oxygen to Rob Hall.
But Harris also disappeared; his body was never found. Expedition leader Scott Fischer and climber Makalu Gau leader of the Taiwanese team that included the late Chen Yu-Nan were found together at feet above Camp 4 on the morning of May Fisher was unresponsive and barely breathing.
Certain that Fischer was beyond hope, the Sherpas left him there. Boukreev, Fischer's lead guide, climbed up to Fischer shortly thereafter but found he had already died.
Gau, although severely frostbitten, was able to walk—with much assistance—and was guided down by Sherpas. The Sherpas listed here were the climbing Sherpas hired by Rob Hall's Adventure Consultants.
Most climbing Sherpas' duties require them to ascend at least as high as Camp III or IV, but not all of them summit. The expedition leaders intend for only a select few of their climbing Sherpas to summit.
Legendary sardar Apa Sherpa was scheduled to accompany the Adventure Consultants group but withdrew due to family commitments.
None of the clients on Hall's team had ever reached the summit of an 8,meter peak , and only Fischbeck, Hansen, and Hutchison had previous high-altitude Himalayan experience.
Hall had also brokered a deal with Outside magazine for advertising space in exchange for a story about the growing popularity of commercial expeditions to Everest.
Krakauer was originally slated to climb with Scott Fischer's Mountain Madness team, but Hall landed him, at least in part, by agreeing to reduce Outside ' s fee for Krakauer's spot on the expedition to less than cost.
As a result, Hall was paying out-of-pocket to have Krakauer on his team. The Mountain Madness Everest expedition, led by Scott Fischer , consisted of 19 individuals, including eight clients.
However, Kruse suffered from altitude sickness and possible high-altitude cerebral edema HACE , and stopped at Camp I.
Fischer descended from Camp II and escorted Kruse back to Base Camp for treatment. The previous day 9 May , Taiwanese team member Chen Yu-Nan had died following a fall on the Lhotse Face.
Half of the climbing team from the Indo-Tibetan Border Police North Col expedition from India Subedar Tsewang Samanla , Lance Naik Dorje Morup , and Head Constable Tsewang Paljor died on the Northeast Ridge.
They were joined by six client climbers, three guides, and Sherpas from Scott Fischer 's Mountain Madness company, as well as an expedition sponsored by the government of Taiwan.
The expeditions quickly encountered delays. There is some question as to the cause of this failure, which cannot now be resolved as the expedition leaders perished.
Hutchison, Kasischke, and Taske returned towards Camp IV as they feared they would run out of supplementary oxygen due to the delays. Boukreev began his descent to Camp IV at , having spent nearly 1.
By that time, Hall, Krakauer, Harris, Beidleman, Namba, and Mountain Madness clients Martin Adams and Klev Schoening had reached the summit,  and the remaining four Mountain Madness clients had arrived.
After this time, Krakauer noted that the weather did not look so benign. Hall's Sirdar , Ang Dorje Sherpa, and other climbing Sherpas waited at the summit for the clients.
Near , they began their descent. On the way down, Ang Dorje encountered client Doug Hansen above the Hillary Step and ordered him to descend.
Hansen did not respond verbally, but shook his head and pointed upward, toward the summit. Hall said he would remain to help Hansen, who had run out of supplementary oxygen.
Scott Fischer did not summit until He was exhausted from the ascent and becoming increasingly ill, possibly suffering from HAPE , HACE , or a combination of both.
Others, including Doug Hansen and Makalu Gau, reached the summit even later. Boukreev recorded that he reached Camp IV by The reasons for Boukreev's decision to descend ahead of his clients are disputed.
Weston DeWalt, co-author of The Climb , state that using bottled oxygen gives a false sense of security. The worsening weather began causing difficulties for the descending team members.
The blizzard on the southwest face of Everest was reducing visibility, burying the fixed ropes, and obliterating the trail back to Camp IV that the teams had broken on the ascent.
Eventually, Lopsang was persuaded by Fischer to descend and leave him and Gau. Hall radioed for help, saying that Hansen had fallen unconscious but was still alive.
Several climbers became lost on the South Col during the storm. Mountain Madness guide Beidleman and clients Klev Schoening, Fox, Madsen, Pittman, and Gammelgaard, along with Adventure Consultant guide Mike Groom and clients Beck Weathers and Yasuko Namba wandered in the blizzard until midnight.
Beidleman, Groom, Schoening, and Gammelgaard set off to find help. Madsen and Fox remained on the mountain with the group in order to shout for the rescuers.
Boukreev located the climbers and brought Pittman, Fox, and Madsen to safety. Boukreev had prioritized Pittman, Fox, and Madsen all of whom were from his Mountain Madness expedition over Namba from the Adventure Consultants expedition , who seemed close to death; he did not see Weathers also from the Adventure Consultants expedition.
All of the climbers then at Camp IV were exhausted and unable to reach Namba and Weathers.The Everest Disaster occurred on May 10, , when four groups of climbers set out to summit Mount Everest. One group was led by Rob Hall of Adventure Consultants, another was led by Scott Fischer of Mountain Madness, an expedition was organized by the Indo-Tibetan Border Police and there was a Taiwanese expedition.
