10 events that need their own landfills - The climb to Mount Everest

This is ... well, words can't do this particular scene justice. I have read or heard in the past that there was garbage left behind on this mountain, and even that there were bodies. But I hadn't realized quite the scale of the mess. Somehow, not sure why, but I'd expect a different sort of behavior from these elite climbers. Give the mountain a rest is right! Have a Mt Everest Alumni event for all the folks who climbed this mountain and let their primary activity be cleaning it up!
