    Uluru being closed off to climbers was pretty funny. Arguably more difficult to walk around the rock than up it and the terrain around it is some of the flattest on Earth but you should have heard the vitriol around the decision. Charter a plane and check out Kata Tjuta and maybe even King's Canyon at the same time ffs

    The sherpa closest to the camera when the white journalist is asking his question is clearly having a PTSD anxiety response when he starts talking about people getting killed...

    If I ever want to climb Everest or a difficult mountain, it will have to be on my own. No point in doing it if I have a team of helpers to do most of it for me.

    I gotta be honest. If you die going up a mountain like Everest without the proper experience or training, you kind of deserve it for being an asshole who thinks "If they can do it, why can't I?" mentality just for bragging rights.

    The actual climb itself, is relatively easy, in terms of mountaineering difficulty. That being said, it's not the physical hiking that is demanding. It's the altitude that people don't take seriously. When you're standing on ground, that is the same cruising altitude as a commercial jetliner, there's going to be some serious risks. The next time you get it in your rich âsś, bond trading head that you have what it takes, just crane your silly little neck up and look at a vapor trail left behind by a jet. THAT'S THE ALTITUDE OF THE SUMMIT. high enough to freeze the capillaries in your lungs, then burst them and kill you as you drown in your own blood.
