Why they camped where they did has always puzzled me. If it was me I would have camped at the treeline to lessen the winds. Why they camped on a small hillock completely exposed to everything never made any sense. They were experienced campers, sometimes that is forgotten.

I agree. The explanations I have seen are that they didn't want to backtrack and lose ground already gained, and they also knew that it was possible to spend the night in the area they choose, even if it wasn't an optimal location. If this video is to be believed, these reasons don't seem irrational.

I will also mention again that there is reason to believe that they were staying away from the woods on that last day. Even that night when things went wrong, they all retreated to the other side of the pass, away from where they had come from and where they had left supplies. Some of the last photos they took were of the woods they had just passed thru. These were out of character with all the other photos which were of the people or camps. I find these last photos to be creepy, as if they are saying 'what is back there, is something following us?'.

Here is an example. Their tracks can be seen on the left, so at this point in the trip they are looking back and taking pictures, whereas earlier they hadn't done this.

Interesting, but inconclusive.

Have we extracted everything from Dyatlov Pass? Are we ready to move on?

Ok, it seems the only weapons they had were knives, all of which were found in the tent. A lot more to discuss but I got sidetracked by wondering how often whole groups of people die in something other than a fatal event, like an explosion or train crash, etc. Two very similar to the Dyatlov Incident:
Chivruay Pass incident in 1973
Mt Tritrans incident in 1993

Mt Tritrans, in Russia near Mongolia:

I think the Mary Celeste is relatively easy to explain. I have seen pirates along with the crew itself or the ship that found her lying and they were pirates. I think in this case you follow the money. They never had any barrels that were leaking alcohol which is one of the favorite theories. As I said, to me follow the prize money.

Thanks for making me aware of these 2 incidents.
People do sometimes act irrationally under extreme conditions, even experienced ones.

UPDATE !

Results of the reopened investigation into the infamous Dyatlov Pass incident [started in February of 2019]:

https://dyatlovpass.com/procecutors-investigation?rbid=18461

Russian officials have announced that their reopened investigation into the infamous Dyatlov Pass incident determined that an avalanche and subsequent hypothermia were to blame for the tragic event.

I say BOO-HISS! We already knew all of this hokum. But if that is what they say, what can we do? It irritates me that they reopen the investigation but only to prove the most pedestrian excuse. They ignore all of the interesting possibilities. But of course, due to the lack of evidence there never will be an acceptable answer. So it remains to me one of the many interesting things to ponder.

DM had a article about this a couple days ago claiming the mystery is now solved: They died of hypothermia. Any more questions?

It was warm so the top layer of snow melted somewhat, then it became very cold so the snow froze hard. Then the wind was blowing fresh snow on top of that, piling it up on the leeward side of the peak. That is the recipe for avalanche. Now, camp underneath the snow that piled up. Have fun . . .

The initial investigation in 1959 determined that seven of them died of Hypothermia and two died from crushing injuries suffered when a ton of snow fell on them. Cause of death has never been a mystery.

Crazy corpses. All very strange.

Seen a docu on it aswell as a rather poor film.
