I do think the way the stories are covered and received are quite publicized. Was it 2007 that 3 went missing on the Cooper Spur and it was on CNN with live coverage for a few days. Then again in 2009, I believe it was that 3 went missing on the Reid head wall and it was all over the news for a few more days. Lets not forget the 2002 incident! The 1996 Everest disaster was front page news for a while! All of these cases involved experienced climbers. All were 'big' news stories too. As I'm sure we all know, climbing mountains is regarded as a dangerous hobby. Combine that with tragedy and apparently it makes for a good news story. My condolences to all who have had to deal with the loss of those involved. I can only wonder how they might feel about that type of exposure.
