Topic - Half a million pounds to climb Everest

davidoldfart - on 08 Jun 2013
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.
