1. Krakauer attributes the disaster to a few things. There is the guide's arrogance in thinking they could get anyone to summit. He feels that people ignored the dangers of the turn-around time. Most fatalities take place on the descent. There was the rivalry between Hall and Fischer that led to risky decisions. Finally there was the weather which the climbers did not respect.
