Perhaps some things should remain unclimbed.

"If we conquer this mountain, then we conquer something in people's souls ... I would suggest they go and climb something a little harder. Kailas is not so high and not so hard." - Messner

Egotistical self centered dumb-ass. But one hell of a climber. What says you?

Halfway and then do a complete circumtraverse. Who needs a summit, right?

Reinhold Messner was given the opportunity by the Chinese government to climb the mountain in the 1980s but he declined. Wiki

smart crowd; I've seen in spelled Kawagarbo, but close enough. I here-by award you great warrior blessings.

19 Japanese climbers killed by the Gods when they tried to traipse their polluted bodies on its sacred slopes.

It would be soooo cool to climb any one of these beauties. But I think my spiritual scruples would prevent me. But damn is it tempting. I want to see a God. Or just God. One second thought I guess you do if you get hit by an avalanche. lol

Since no one answered, the last peak is Gangkhar Puensum, on the border of Bhutan and Tibet.

Here's the one I'd like to get up. Would make a good ski line! Brandon?

It included an interesting puzzle, witty repartee, and accolades for all. What's not to like?

Kunlun, are you from Asia? You seem to know all the answers. :)

I'm trying to think up a good prize for that last one.
