IMO if someone wants to climb Everest, more power to them. The risk of death is something that everyone knows about on that mountain and if you think it's ok to try to climb it without enough experiance then that's your own opinion. Personaly, I think it's a really bad idea, but I can't control others and they have the right to try if they're willing to accept the risks. I'm planning on climbing Everest within the next few years, but I'm going to be doing a lot of training and plan on picking up a lot more experiance between now and then. I'm impressed with anyone who makes it to the top, no matter how much experiance they have, no matter if they have someone else carrying their gear most of the way or use fixed ropes or what. 14,000 feet in Colorado gives a lot of people altitude sickness and a lot of people struggle at that altitude, I've been to over 17,000 and noticed a big differance between that and 14,000 I can't imagine what it's like at 29,000. To those of you who think using tools at 29,000 feet who've never been above 14,000, I'd like to see you make it up there without using any of those tools.
