Yup, because that would clearly be relevant and the only factor that could possibly prevent her from climbing straight into your pants.

The extremely harsh weather conditions that batter the highest Himalayan peaks limit the climbing season to just a few weeks every year.

It's a bit nepally up there.

This is what happens when you dither over whether it's appropriate to refer to someone as "a Sherpa" or whether just referring to them as Sherpa is preferred, and then get distracted while you're looking it up.

Only about 100-150 reach the summit each year, so it's still a pretty impressive feat.

At  what point below the summit do you have to start ambulating to "climb" a mountain? I'd hate to get to the top and get red carded.

It is.  But if only 1 in a million can do it, that means that there are 7000 people who can do it in the world.  That's several score a day during climbing season.

OTOH, my dad just climbed Kilimanjaro.  His guide had done it some 150 times.  My dad's certificate number was well into the 200,000s, and they don't issue certificates to the sherpas.

Uhuru peak is the one people care about.  His particular group picked the hike that takes a week to do and goes all over the mountain, though, so probably.  He only just got back Friday and I haven't gone to visit and get the whole story in pictures yet.

Wish I could do something like that. I did a short day hike in the Cascades and my knees couldn't take it.

Actually for experienced climbers either of the main routes is not exactly a major challenge unless the weather goes to hell. To them K2 is far harder, and Kangchenjunga, the world's third tallest mountain, being harder too. Then there's Annapurna, which despite being the first mountain over 8,000 meters to see someone reach its summit still hasn't had 200 people make it. Though it's getting there. For comparison last year 30 people made it to the summit of K2. Annapurna meanwhile can have a year where it sees one expedition trying to reach the summit. Also as for Everest, the most dangerous part isn't up top in the much discussed death zone, it's down below in the ice fall. You're more likely to die falling in a crevasse or by having a huge chunk of ice, what's called a serac, fall on you than you are to die by exposure up in the death zone.

She must have left a sweater of credit on top with a Sherpa and went back to see if he was seeing anyone else.

Chhurim said there are not many women mountaineers and only a few of them have records.

What does one's criminal past have to do with their mountain climbing ability?

Only because the season is so short. It is a mountain for climbers who dont like climbing. Nothing technical about it.

Kilimanjaro is a fun, life-changing climb with a difficult last day.  Aconcagua is an order of magnitude harder and a miserable three weeks.  The 8000-m mountains are way harder than that...and Everest is one of the toughest of those.

I got stopped by hypoxia and low-level HAPE about 1,000 feet below the summit of Aconcagua.  That day sucked.
 
2013-02-26 09:03:41 AM
She climbed it twice in a week? That's just dumb.
 
2013-02-26 09:22:23 AM
From Base camp to the summit is 11,500 vertical feet.  Wow.

I've skied from the top of Blackcomb glacier (after a short hike from the highest point lift-served) down to the bottom of Blackcomb mountain (5,678').  The glacier is a black diamond, then it is mostly blue runs to the bottom.  Took me 45 mins unbroken.  That's a long time for a single run.

That's a helluva run, Farker. Helluva run. And you're crazy.  ;-)

For all the talk of Everest being an easy climb with no challenges most anyone who has held that idea prior to the climb has changed their mind afterwards. Even guys with highly technical backgrounds. Sure its not devils thumb or Annapurna but its hard as hell. a great quote I read someplace was basically the closer you get to the top the less important it becomes to reach the top as you're just struggling to survive.

Two guys died on the mountain of altitude-related problems while we were in base camp on Aconcagua.  Made us realize it wasn't a walk in the park.

I have to say hats off to her.. I don;t even feel like taking the steps to my 4th floor office twice in a week even on days that I want to purposely skip the escalator.

BTW how come companies like REI, Alpine etc never used sherpas in their commercial?
