I'm fascinated by the drive that propels these climbers (especially the first) to climb Everest.
It's not something I'd ever want to do in my lifetime. I think I'll stick to the desert.

It's incredible. Even today with all that modern gear. You are simply slowly killing yourself. You just hope to make it back before it catches up with you.
I can't imagine what it must have been like to be Hillary and Norgay. They had no idea what was waiting for them beyond each turn.
Talk about accomplishing something huge in your lifetime.
