lazermonkey -  I was hoping someone would search before saying "NO a helicopter cant go that high" lol

i remembered hearing about it when he did it.

15 minutes from the airport to the summit. kind of funny if you think about it, flying past all those dead bodies of people who spent weeks trying to climb it with the heat on in the chopper.

besides not bringing bodies down they also don't bring down their trash.

i beleive they have limited the number of permits because of the tons of debris that have accumulated on the routes. almost every food container, fuel bottle, oxygen bottle, climbing gear, tents, shit, water bottles, etc, that went up stayed there and litters the mountain.

It's a big landfill up there. And it's not like you can do it naturally without extra oxygen, tons of equipment, and a sherpa and whatnot. If you want to prove something, go survive by yourself like survivorman or something instead of buying an "achievement".

this dude didn't die.

Yuichiro Miura
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Yuichiro Miura (?????, born October 12, 1932) is a Japanese alpinist who in 2003 became the oldest person to reach the summit of Mount Everest, aged 70. This record was later broken, but at 0733 local time on May 26th 2008 Yuichiro and team Miura successfully summited Mt Everest. Yuichiro was 75 years 7 months and 14 days old at the time.

Keizo Miura, notable alpinist and skier, is his father. Gouta Miura, freestyle skier and alpinist, is one of his sons. He reached the summit on May 22, 2003, at age 70 years and 222 days. This achievement is listed in the Guinness Book of Records. He also became the first person to ski on Mount Everest, when he descended nearly 2,400 m (8,000 ft) from the South Col (elevation over 8,000 m (26,000 ft)) in 1970. This feat was documented in 1975, in the film The Man Who Skied Down Everest.

 I've only been to 5600m but after about 4000 it's like you've got the flu or asthma, and it gets worse as you go up.

Scary thing is that Everest is actually a much safer climb than Annapurna or K2.

40% of those who attempt to climb Annapurna die during the ascent.

That just means that more people need to try. Gotta push the odds. Or create steps.

everything in life has its risks. this is like saying you would have no sympathy for a MMA fighter who dies in the ring. it is a silly way of thinking.

I watched the discovery series on climbing Everest. I never understood the magnitude of the climb and how dangerous it really is. Some of you guys obviously have no idea how hard it really is to climb Everest. Just because the guys paid for the trip and equipment doesn't mean they can magically climb the mountain and everything is all good.

Is that just an unfortunate post that the one climber was stuck in at death, or is he really fapping away to heaven?

I remember having read somewhere that at the final moments of life when you are freezing to death and are lacking oxygen, your body becomes a furnace of sorts and you start to undress yourself in bitter cold conditions.  I wonder if that was the case and the climber started to undress and noticed his frozen wood.   He probably said "Oh fuck it, I might as well cum as I go" and started to pound his pud so he could create a pearly river and sail it to the pearly gates. 

Honestly, I'm guessing psycosis of sorts set in and he was really masterbating at the time of his death....and he's now forever frozen in an unfortunate pose......depending on your point of view.
