Korean climbers on Annapurna-update

The sad news came yesterday, as reported on Exweb, that the search for the three missing climbers has been called off. They are presumed dead; their photos are on display in a temple in Kathmandu. Terribly sad news. Ironically enough, Ed Viesturs new book, The Will to Climb, talking about this own experience on Annapurna, statistically the deadliest mountain on the planet, is next on my reading list.
