    1. I was thinking they are all out looking for Darwin awards.

      You want an adrenaline rush? Invent something.
      Climbing a rock just so you climbed a rock is utter stupidity.

  2. Ban Mountains and sever ties with the National Sherpa Association. That'll fix the Everest mass killing problem.

  3. Yup. K2 is to Everest as Major League baseball is to the minors.
    Inspired me to reread a 1980's book on a K2 expedition I have. 27 made it to the summit. 13 died.
