But Everest is still the ultimate. Have you read "Into Thin Air"?
I hate the cold, but for some reason the idea of climbing a mountain has always appealed to me. It does sound like Everest has become too commercialized, however; available to those who have the money, but unfortunately, neither the skills nor the stamina to survive in unexpected conditions.
I understand the mountain is getting quite polluted...garbage, human waste, empty oxygen bottles. And the bodies of those left behind. :(
