In reply to UKC Articles: The Jornos are too lazy to question the fact as to why so many people die on it - it's because it's so accessible and technically easy that it's taken for granted by many people (often with too much money, all the gear and no idea) and see it as the ultimate challenge for mountaineering. It's pathetic and AKP has, once again, hit the nail square on the head. Top article, Andy. hopefully people will take heed of your wise words!

That pic on Andy KPs blog looks like the queue at the bottom of kinder when the downfall is in condition.

In reply to UKC Articles: He is right of course except for not making it clear that there are some routes on Everest that are climbs not walks. But they are not generally what the journos are asking about.

In reply to UKC Articles: So the long and the short of it is, he'd suck the devils cock to climb it!
I'd put a fiver into the "Bitter and Twisted Everest travel log" fund.
Watching Kirkpatrick marching up the thing embarrassing all the tourists, guides and TV crews, is just the kind of TV I want to see. Could we have him chuck Bear Grylls off the top as well in a Mallory reenactment clip?
