    I don't get the hate...this new craze puts money in the hands of 3rd world people with about zero options, and you have a great chance of having some deuche bag banker dying. It's a win win!

    Evolve literal super-human abilities to survive high altitude and survive in one of the most dangerous places on earth... so you can carry people from privileged countries to the top so they can later brag about it.

    Do you know what's the best part? Nobody knows any of those climbers and nobody but close friends and family cares. So the recognition is equivalent to win a pastry tournament in your hometown High School.

    They should just install a gondola at this point... what a joke. There’s a guy at my gym that in the first conversation spoke about climbing Mt Everest. Haven’t spoken to him again in 10 years and I see him every month or so...I’m pretty sure that was his only agenda. A bunch of psychopaths. Well at least the majority. It would be the last thing on earth I’d want to do.

    RAISE THE PRICES. Raise the fuck outta them. There's always going to be demand. Even if you see it as a purely business thing, the Nepalese government needs to make Everest more exclusive. No good business would allow that much shit to happen. Oof. This is harrowing.

    I've been hiking for 30 years. But I have no desire to ever go up Everest or any high or crowded mountain. I used to hike solo up a ridge line where no one barely ever went. 600 meters up over 0.75 km. That is about 2000 feet up in 1.8 miles. That was plenty good for me. I quit going there because I was getting migraines from the radio tower on the top. And also the rattlesnakes almost bit me once or twice. Oh and I got caught up in a lightning storm coming down one time. I saw a double rainbow that day, and my life flash before my eyes.

    Rich white people climbing Mount Everest is like rich people going to Burning Man... they spend a lot of money for a comfortable RV with food and drinks all prepared for them and sleep comfortably while everyone sleeps in the sand and trade belongings to barter for supplies... I bet you $100 they can't climb it on their own the 2nd time without a Shepard.. so that means it wasn't an achievement because they didn't actually climb it themselves, but they had heavy assistance (Shepards carrying your equipment, cooking food for you, preparing the ladder to help you cross a deep ditch, navigating and showing you where to go).

    It's difficult to see the appeal in this. I'd have imagined that one of the amazing things which gave this arduous climb purpose would have been some intense feeling of solitude at the top, something both desolate and spiritual, unlikely to be felt again, but a memory to return to often when your spirit needs a connection. How the f- do you get anything like a mountaintop experience when you're up there for a couple minutes?! That line looked worse than the line outside a women's restroom- complete with the conscious knowledge that you're pressed for time, others are waiting, etc.- only this time, they might DIE if you take too long! Or what of a relatively well-prepared, experienced mountain climber who gets stuck behind a person who shouldn't be attempting this by any means? Add to this frustrating bottleneck of humans conditions which are life-threatening and just plain physically uncomfortable, and it just seems to me like you've got the makings of the Everest of Vacations from Hell.

    Not that I didn't enjoy this, but I clicked on a link for an episode called Police Militarization, having just watched one on accountability. And it sent me here. This does worry me a bit.

    It seems a bit too much of a coincidence that UAclips just happened to glitch on that particular link. Put together with other convenient glitches happening recently, I'm getting really worried about where this is going.

    It amazes me that some of the people who trek Everest leave litter. Why are you even climbing Everest in the first place? To see a beautiful mountain? To experience a gorgeous part of the world that few have gone? Leaving litter takes away from the beauty and is very disrespectful.
    Your either part of the of the problem or part of the solution. Thank you to the cleanup crew that removed so much trash from Everest.
    If your not part of the solution stay the Fuck home.

    So what. I went inside The Great Pyramid at Giza. When I got to the King's Chamber the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities employee watching it bummed a cigarette off me, but it was my last one. It surprised me because I was like what, you can SMOKE inside the King's Chamber? Well, HE did but I didn't. I mention it because it actually was pretty difficult getting up that narrow passageway in a semi-crouched position, and going down was even worse.

    It's like tattoos. It used to mean you were "tough" or a "rebel" to have one. Now every tween and adderall Mom has one. There are sherpers to do all the work and clean up the narcissist's trash and feces. Climbing Mt. Everest is now like getting a trustafarian, privileged college undergrad on holiday tramp stamp.
