The Ugly Business Of Climbing Mount Everest

It's been a particularly bad season on Mt Everest.

11 people have died and there are crowds of hundreds of climbers waiting in queues to get to the peak.

But what does it really take to make it to the top of the world's highest mountain? Aussie Alyssa Azar has done it twice and she says more and more people will die if the mountain isn't better managed.
