    I doubt it looks so pretty to someone who's freezing to death...

    Ppl who have climbed Everest say by the time you get up there, you're so worn out and in such a hurry to return that you sit for a sec, take a picture, and immediately turn around and go back. Like Chevy Chase and his family in Vacation when they see the grand canyon.

    nice photo...


    allie...the window to climb everest is short....you have to start up at 2 am...and turn around by a certian time to live...this is not a flexiable rule...most of those who die on everest have summitted and are on their way down. you cannot spend much time in the "death zone"

    I met Eric Weihenmeyer in a brewpub in Leadville, Colorado. He was climbing 14'ers with his Kiwi guide/buddy who, if I remember correctly, led him up Everest. He was a nice guy. I don't know why he does it. I guess, because its there.

    Here's a video of Erik Weihenmeyer, a man who lost his lower legs to frostbite, and a man who is a parapalegic (climbing accident) climbing a sandstone tower outside of Moab, UT. Talk about some bad ass, muthas! (Shitty quality video)
