From the AP:
Record Crowd Reaches Top of Everest. The top of the world was crowded Thursday, with a record 54 people making it to the summit of Mount Everest, including the grandson of one of the first two men to conquer it in 1953.
This makes me nervous. Not in any personal sense, but if I recall correctly, it was this kind of crowding that led to the disastrous day recounted in Into Thin Air.
