There's an interview with Kenton Cool in today's Times magazine (behind a paywall). In it he says he's now mainly into bespoke, one-to-one guiding on Everest, at a cost to each client of £500,000. He also talks about how nice it is at basecamp, hanging out with investment bankers and Wall St traders, dining on fresh sushi just choppered in. The article ends with a quote in which he sounds - perhaps unintentionally - disparaging about people who die in the hills or get frostbite. Of course I admire his recent achievements. But if this article is a fair representation of what he said, it sounds uncomfortably like hubris. Be careful, Kenton.
