This is the “Man Eater” mountain. Its name translates to Mount Black. Its chilling, but deserved, reputation is due to the enormous rocky heights. The mountain is simply rocks and ice. Avalanches are common. People have died from exhaustion, among many other causes such as altitude sickness (more than 26,000 feet), hypothermia, and frostbite. Just over 260 people have attempted to climb the mountain, 61 of them have died.
