When Jesus complained about only getting gold and frankincense from the Wise Men, they said “wait, there’s myhrr”.

Super Comic Fun Time! said...

Yeah, why not.

sandybrook said...

I'm afraid of heights.

Unknown said...

Fuck no! There’s a reason they call it the dead zone.

MountainMama said...

No way.

cheesegrater15 said...

Hell no. I abstain from things that could kill me: skiing, cimbing Everest, dating.

Do Tell said...

NO. I lived in Japan for 5 years and did want to climb Mt. Fuji just to get the cool souvenir walking stick, but circumstances never were right.

Tuesdi said...

NO. Cold sucks.

Cuddlebutt said...

Hell no!!

most famous dead preserved guy is 'Green Boots' - climbers use his body as a land marker for their ascents. he died in the 80s:

fuck no

BlissBoo said...

@notthisagain, I think Green Boots was retrieved if I recall correctly? SO WEIRD, but I just watched a documentary on Everest last night on YT. What a coincidence Evidently quite a few of the bodies have now been retrieved.

You can hire a Sherpa service who will go up there to try and get the body. Not a cheap feat nor is it without danger to the Sherpas. Very sad for what they do they only make around five grand per year!

Ann said...

It's way too cold and I'm also afraid of heights.

Does it count as a feat if you have Sherpas basically carrying you and your gear up a path where they have done this thousands of times? They should have a secret "Skip the Shit" booth at the bottom where you pay to get a selfie done with a green screen of the top. You still have to pay and do get the passport stamps but you save the labor and have essentially accomplished the same amount of effort on your part while sparing a Sherpa the possibility of dying for you.

Hello no it sounds exhausting.

hunter said...

Robert - I think that's definitely how Mariah Carey would do it.

LA Native said...

Hard pass. With no more med insurance I twnd to shy away from risky activities.

Groggy said...

Definitely. Sign me up for the first bus tour! :)

B626 said...

My coworker did it
I donated to her trip fund
It costs a lot
She brought back flags of Nepal for me

Liz Pop said...

Nope

Henriette said...

No, I do not want to look at all the dead people who didn't make it, nor do I want to see the people dying to get up the mountain.

HushHush said...

I'd love to. The training involved is daunting, plus the cost is for the rich, or fully sponsored. Then there's luck, Everest kill's many of the best alpinists, as well as some who need more training. I've had the pleasure of meeting a few alpinist's who've summited more than once, and they're impressive people.

AbbyRock said...

No to climbing Everest but I'd love to go to Nepal and Tibet.

bunny honey said...

Hell to the nawwww.

Mischief Girl said...

No flippin' way. I don't even want to go to their base camp!

Hortensia said...

All one has to do is read "Into Thin Air" to know how dangerous it is.
Lots of dead bodies, lots of trash that climbers don't take back down with them.
The mountain is littered.
Base camp is a day's journey from Lhasa; unfortunately, didn't get to take that side trip.

Cee Kay said...

I mean, I'd love to be dropped off at the top by a helicopter, but no way am I climbing that thing.

GentleBreeze said...

Bwahahahaha! uh, no.

Leslie said...

Dying of hypothermia after ripping my clothes off, due to paradoxical skin burning, does not sound like a good time. Ditto on, Into Thin Air, it's a great book.

P Rei said...

yes

Owlette said...

Definitely not. My husband made it to base camp. I’d visit Nepal though!

Mango said...

Pass. It's cold and full of tons of poop.

Fairylights said...

No. No way. I'm not afraid of heights, but I have lousy balance, I doubt I'd even make it to the base of the mountain without killing myself.

Paul Saint John said...

Id rather blow up the damn mountain for easier communications in the area.

Rome said...

I laughed out loud then ask God’s forgiveness.

As usual she was silent.
