Let's Be Mount Everest Climbing Season

Seeing the threads about the lost climbing season, maybe we can do this as a fun replacement.

I'm HAPE - high altitude pulmonary edema - not to be confused with my relative HACE - high altitude cerebral edema. Either way, you're fucked.

Was it last year that the media was having a fit with the long lines of people at the apex waiting their turn to stand at the tip-top. And that wait was so long, people were dying in line, and the people behind them were stepping over the dead bodies as the line advanced?

I hope they're social distancing up there.

I am K2's north side. I breathe easy because only experienced climbers can summit me and many die anyway. Plus I am located in the middle of the Karakoram Range. I am not easy to get to, even harder to climb. I'm called the Savage Mountain because one climber stated "It's a savage mountain that tries to kill you."

Look at those sheer cliffs at my summit, think the Sherpas will help you? assuming you find any in the middle on nowhere.

More about me...

The surveyor's mark, K2, therefore continues to be the name by which the mountain is commonly known.

The Italian climber Fosco Maraini argued in his account of the ascent of Gasherbrum IV that while the name of K2 owes its origin to chance, its clipped, impersonal nature is highly appropriate for so remote and challenging a mountain. He concluded that it was:

... just the bare bones of a name, all rock and ice and storm and abyss. It makes no attempt to sound human. It is atoms and stars. It has the nakedness of the world before the first man – or of the cindered planet after the last.

I'm surprised some of these other peaks haven't become the new snobby ego flex - essentially "Everest is over, anyone can do that; real men/women conquer K2 (or whatever other peak)."

by Anonymousreply 4906/07/2020

The other peaks are too hard, and too dangerous for the thrill-seekers with money to burn. There really aren't a lot of peaks that share Everest's combination of being world famous, the highest ever, and easy compared to the other Death Zone peaks. Try K2 or Annapurna without being one of the world's best climbers, and you don't come down alive!

Kilimanjaro is probably second to Everest, for well-to-do thrill seekers. that's just a very stiff hike, though.
