    You could see almost the whole fucking traverse dude. And he's a guide.

    That's from the Tibet side. Epic on the Nepal side.

    Naw its still pretty cool to climb everest. And I can only imagine how difficult and challenging it must be.

    by your logic, should we cease climbing mountains altogether except those that have yet to be summited by humans?

    Congrats to Caroline and Rob! I wish them safe travels down and off the mountain, halfway home!

    CG is back down at ABC (6500m) according to her insta story. Not done but below the death zone.

    They do guiding out of squaw, capable crew from my experience / what Iíve seen. Adrian is a pretty humble guy despite being Australian. ;-)

    yea, another here who never has been there thinks you are right..

    .. obviously they don't want to drop rocks n ice on lower climbers

    ..and there's the language barrier...can't have 2 on the same rope- though they could have a Sherpa yank the ropes when they are down (radio communicate)and keep the rope clear of more climbers, so its not a clusterfk of pancaked climbers

    Its still d- able, I think>unless rappelling is not possible at that extreme height, safely? due to lack of O2

    Close. Maybe when Rob finishes the tri. Still got the English channel and bike across 'murica. Wonder if his trip rolls him through the Bible belt?

    Caroline Gleich Harrassment Story

    Donít hate me cause I travel the world: https://www.instagram.com/p/B0jkIXMn...=16q9kftge28ml

    Gets old constantly hearing athletes/environmentalists who get to travel the world defend their actions. Theyíre all environmentalists when itís convenient.

    I’m not sure why CG chaps some people’s ass so much, but ... fuck, get over it.
    And I guess that I just don't know

    I'm with you. You wanna be a climate activist, lead by example. Maybe don't take that money from goRVing.com because your message gets drown out when your actions don't match your words.

    More or less. It's just bandwagoning on an issue to promote her personal brand rather than actually address the issue, just like multitudes of other instagram personalities and athletes. How, exactly, does the picture associated with that message in any way promote ANYTHING related to climate change activism? Looks to me like an sponsored athlete representing her sponsors and is using the climate change issue to do so.

    Wish I could let it go, but this shit really bugs me and it's definitely not just CG.

    With NWFlow on this. Don't care much about Caroline Gleich, although if she is honest she got where she is because she is a pretty woman, but the athlete pro-environmentalist who travels the world is just a hypocrit. Save our Winters is the worse. So now it is not people causing climate change, but big corporations. Jeesh

    In general, I donít like being told what to do. That post starts out telling me what I should be doing or what Iím not doing. While also subliminally telling me to eat cliff bars, wear Keens and use Eddie Bauer gear. All while she jets around the world. Maybe take one less trip instead of telling me to call a freaking restaurant and suggest they use compostable containers. I couldnít imagine ever doing that, unless maybe I was a compostable takeout container salesman.

    Also, looks like she got a little frost nip on the nose.

    Carry on with the love/hate

    Around 4000 people have climbed that mountain for all sorts of causes and reasons. No matter who you are it means putting one foot higher than the last and keeping going. Getting up and back down alive and whole is an accomplishment.

    That said, doing it to promote fighting Climate Change just seems silly.

    Holy fuck that's funny. Didn't really catch that the first time around. I mean what planet are you on to suggest doing something like that?!
