/ Denis Urubco - Everest - his view of events
A very good read indeed.
I accept and support the sherpas right to work and improve their personal comfort and the lives of their familes by dragging bankers up a dispoiled icon and I hope they can continue to do so but the climbing community must choose other objectives more in keeping with the true spirit of what we love. RIP Chomolungma, a victim of superficial vanity and the corrosive effect of money.
When was Everest not expensive?
