A short summary of the Book Into Thin Air:
Climbing Mt. Everest May 10, 1996, and living to tell about it
My favorite quote from the book:
"Any person who would seriously consider it [climbing Mount Everest] is almost by definition beyond the sway of rational argument."
Questions I pondered while reading Into Thin Air:
Why do we (as humans) push so many boundaries?
Should Mt. Everest be open to the inexperienced?
My thoughts about Into Thin Air:
Wouldn't consider the climb now - not that I had before.
14ers are plenty big enough for me.
1 in 4 is an ugly bet with your life.
