Everest 2014: Season Summary – A Nepal Tragedy

If you need a chair at 21,000’, carry your own damn chair. If you paid $100,000 and expect a chair and table at Camp 2, you don’t belong on Everest.

The Operators need to stop the silliness associated with attracting clients – no more helicopters for clients in and out of base camp.  Stop the 5 Star European chefs and sushi. Stop telling people it is an “easy climb”. Stop giving so much support. Cut back on the oxygen. Be stricter with whom can be your client. Just because you summited Everest 5 times, doesn’t mean you should accept a client who has only managed a trekking peak. No chairs at Camp 2!
