the Everest scene is lame and has been so for decades

it takes a special species of narcissist to bother with that slag and the riffraff it attracts. They can have it.

29,000 feet? Am I the only one here who understands meteorology? Basic atmosphreic physics? You think writing a 70,000 dollar check is gonna buy you safety up there? Am I the only guy who read "Into Thin Air?" Krakaur was one bad-ass climber, and when he writes about how he almost died up there -- not because of bad rock, or shitty anchors -- but simply because there is no Oxygen to breath -- I go, "whoa".

Roughly 235 torr at the summit. Thin air indeed.

Yogi Berra's quote about a bar in Brooklyn comes to mind:

"Nobody goes there anymore because it's too crowded."

good observations Rilley. As fuked up as it is, there's far worse to moan about.

The same can be said for Denali, Aconcagua, Rainier or Gondolas up into a logging cut block.
None of it means sh#t to anyone in Darfur or east LA.

Between this thread and the one on soloing the WF of El Cap, I'd say this forum is getting pretty jaded. Here's an idea: how about limiting ourselves to 10 posts between every time we actually climb something? That would put some brakes on the natural tendency to fill cyberspace with thick layers of bullsh#t.

On belay!

Those Yogi quotes are great, even the second time around

Deja vous all over again

Were those one liners original material of Yogi?

It would be great to go back there, with a group of friends and climbers from ST, and climb some 6000+ meter peaks.
We would all be like kids in a candy store.

Sign me up Riley . . . time to get some serious altitude. No internet allowed!
