As of mid-2011, Mount Everest has claimed the lives of over 216 known
mountain climbers. The area above 26,000 feet is called “the Death

*Green Boots* is the name given to the unidentified corpse of a climber
that became a landmark on the main Northwest ridge route of Mount
Everest.^[1] The term /Green Boots/ originates from the green
mountaineering boots the body still wears. All expeditions from the south
side encounter the body curled in the limestone alcove cave at 8,500 m
(27,900 ft). In 2006, a different climber, David Sharp, died during a solo
climb in what is known as "Green Boots' Cave". His plight may have been
overlooked by those who saw him there but did not stop to investigate as
they mistakenly believed him to be Green Boots.^[2] Sharp's body was
removed the next year, although due to the expense, difficulty, and danger
of removing bodies, this removal was uncommon.^[3]

Since 2014, Green Boots has been missing, presumably removed or buried.^[3]

on his right side, facing away from the summit. According to Paperon,
sherpas told him that it was the body of a Chinese mountaineer who had
attempted the climb six months earlier.^[4]

In later years, the body could be seen lying on its left side, facing the
direction of the summit.^[5] Over time, the corpse became known both
