If you were in peak condition and had the opportunity, would you climb Everest or K-2???

No way. Too many people die there for me. Maybe if I didnt have a wife and kids, but not in this life. Super feat for anyone who can do it, though.

I have followed climbing on Everest for many years. From what I read the mountain is full of garbage and some bones. Had some interaction with Conrad Anker because I once owned a pair of boots he used to climb Everest. I think the early climbers were very brave. Earlier on in my life I may have done it Anymore I am pretty much over it.

More than "some bones" There are dead people laying around everywhere on that mountain. A lot of them are used as "markers" and they lay where they died. If you die on that mountain, chances are that you will stay on that mountain. There is really no way to get you down. I was going to post another video of some of the bodies but I felt it a bit to graphic. Over 160 have died on that mountain, there are bodies everywhere.

No, too many dead bodies there already. Plus I don't like cold weather.

I have no interest in climbing mountains. It seems fairly pointless to me. I would much rather exert myself trapping, hunting, fishing or even gardening because I get a sense of accomplishment plus stuff.

I've thought about it at one point in my younger years. It was very cost prohibitive for me then, it really is now.
You can go cheaper, but it costs anywhere from $30-50K for a good Sherpa team, permits, and other royalties. That doesn't include your clothes and stuff.

It takes about 2 weeks just to hike to base camp to become acclimated to the altitude. The climbing season is very short, because of just coming out of winter and trying to beat their monsoon season. Then you gotta hope that the weather is good to be able to make your ascent. When you leave the top camp (camp 3 I think) you have basically 1 or 2 shots at the summit. You're in the "death zone" at that point so you really want to be there less than 72 hours. The guy I was talking to about it said that you'll leave camp around midnight or so for your final push. That will give you time to reach the summit and descend during daylight. He also said it can get very crowded at certain points.

Then we talked about the possibility of death. He said the Sherpas will do everything possible to get your body off the mountain, but did say if they couldn't they'd push you off to the side and continue on.

Far as I know there isn't any coyotes, deer, horses or cows up there and if God wants to talk to me he's better equipped to come down here than me go up there. So I see no reason to go up there. Plus I hear it gets chilly up there at night even in summer.

I like to look at mountains not climb them.
