Mount Everest is straining under our weight. Time to dump the bucket list | Philip Hoare
As reports suggest damage to Hillary Step, a rocky outcrop on the mountain, we should remember we do not own these awesome places, no matter how many names we give themIt’s a scene from one of John Martin’s apocalyptic paintings. Or a modern disaster movie. But this isn’t CGI. Everest may have begun to collapse, as if under the collective weight of its explorers.Or so it seems. Reports that the rocky outcrop Hillary Step, named after Sir Edmund Hillary, who first climbed the mountain with Tenzing Norgay in 1953, may have been destroyed during the Nepal earthquake of 2015 (although some say it’s just been buried under snow), speak to our desire to extend our human dominion. Even the name signifies appropriation – our taxonomy of nature. Metaphorically, it seems, the Earth reacts.
