Pack it in,pack it out. If the climbers can carry all the gear in including food and oxygen full, why can't they carry the empty bottles and food containers off the mountains, plus their own feces. Dropping it into a crevass is not the answer. While no one today or in the next century will have to deal with it someone in the future may have to when the waste goes into melt water in a stream that feeds a neighboring village or community
