No one goes there anymore

Apparently because it's no longer lonely at the top;

Three climbers died and two others were missing while descending from the summit of Mount Everest - a toll that raised concerns about overcrowding in the "death zone" at the top of the world's tallest peak.
The deadly weekend unfolded as an estimated 150 climbers tried to reach the top Friday and Saturday as they rushed to use a brief window of good weather in an otherwise troubled climbing season. Many had been waiting at a staging camp for several days for their chance to head to the summit.
