    Jordan Romero’s book is a truly inspiring piece of work in itself. It must be a true thrill to climb all of the world’s seven summits at the youngest age ever recorded. In my life, I have encountered my own “seven summits” which parallel as challenges I have faced throughout the course of my lifetime. The first and the most monumental “mountain” I had to climb was dealing with the death of my father. Personally, this was my “Everest” and through dealing with it, it has made me a much stronger and more capable human being. The event occurred whenever I was seven years old. Much like Romero, this is a super young age to have to deal with such a personal and tragic incident. Much unlike Romero, my Everest was a much more sad and depressing…

    I would say climbing Mount Everest is a bad idea say that because climbers have a high chance catching a deadly disease and death.This disease is called AMS(Acute Mountain Sickness).It is caused by reduced air pressure and lower oxygen levels at high altitudes.Most likely to happen if you climb too fast to a high altitude you would get it but to be able to climb mount everest you have to have the right gear and enough oxygen tanks. “180+ have climbed and quickly died”.(p.420)So you…

In 1953, Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay became the first people to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Since then, almost 4,000 other people have tried to do the same. Not everyone makes it to the peak though, but some people’s lives are saved by helicopters, rescue teams and other rescue services. People do not have the right to rescue services when they…

    Even though it is easier for people to climb Everest now than it was many years ago, people still have the possibility of dying. You have to wait for storms to abate, a possibility of getting high altitude cerebral edema/high altitude pulmonary edema, hypothermia, and other dangerous events. Even Sherpas are more in danger than they ever have been due to the many things they have to carry such as, bottled oxygen and medical supplies. Which can also add to the slovenly state of the camp sights,…

    Keep Everest open In my opinion I think that we should keep everest open for the following reason. My first reason is that if you were to ask anyone who has done any accomplishment in his/her life you will hear them say that they have a sense of achievement that they felt like they could almost do anything and that when you climb that mountain even if you just go up a few hundred feet you feel like you just beat the odds that you had against yourself and that you rose from your personal “jail”…
