Tangent: It reminds me of a college student trying to write "fancily", to sound more intellectual. It's a problem in academia. It sort of spreads in a group-affirming plague of "look how smart we are" for using fancy words that need decoding. (You might think I'm joking but this is a real problem, a few professors wrote fake articles with a lot of fancy words to see if they could get published, even though the words actually didn't mean anything, and they were repeatedly published!) Bottom line, sometimes it's not that you don't understand because you don't know enough English, but that no one understands unless they're faking it. 😲 Ok, sorry,..

According to the official report, the hikers would have left some evidence like papers and a camera. Then, on January 31st, the group arrived on the edge of the mountain area, so they decide to make camp. The next day, February 1st, the group walked to the opposite side of the mountain. The weather worsened and the visibility of the area became increasingly difficult. The hikers were lost and diverted westward to Kholat Syakhl, a mountain that translated into English means "Dead Mountain."
