    They should just ensure that everyone applying for a permit sees this picture first

    Wow, I can get a challenging experience like that just by going to the DMV! It's usually a lot cheaper and I don't have to freeze my ass off!

    If you don't qualify to climb Everest go to K2. It's not as high, so surely easier. I don't support my previous statement because sheep's, and not inexperienced arrogant and unprepared tourists are who would suffer. McKinley, Kilimanjaro there are others

    K2 is way more dangerous AND harder to get to.

    If marathons have qualifications and rules before you apply to be put into a draw go potentially get a position, makes sense Everest should also create a structure to both qualify and limit climbers.

    They are not climbers. They are hyper-wealthy people who pay others to carry them to the summit so they can tell their other hyper-wealthy friends what they did with the excess money. Along the way, they litter and create havoc.
