I've always thought about climbing this mountain, after watching this I've decided not pursue this life prise.

I believe the people who do climb this mountain are troubled people. I do (not admire) respect all who do climb this mountain, however, I don't think their thirst /desire to push themselves to the point of near death will never be quenched.

Im all for pushing yourself, but to come so close to death is a little to macabre for me.The single-mindedness required to attempt a mountain like Everest is a thoroughly selfish trait.

A great account of a terrible event.
