Some veterans say too many of the new wave of mountaineer tourists are ill-prepared for what remains a major test of body and soul.

I don't think we can say it's a "new wave"- Jon Krakauer wrote about this stuff in his book Into Thin Air, which was based on events that happened in 1996. These are not new developments. I can only assume that as long as there is money to be made, some people will look the other way.
