    Those sherpas have it easy when it comes to climbing.

    Lay rope to the summit, stand on top, back at advanced base camp for dinner and shots of whiskey.

    I just saw that the first program was recorded on my DVR - must be called the same series on the guide. The sherpas are amazing!

    How about learning to use crampons and ice climb on Everest. Seems to be a different than I think it should be.

    Are you talking about that lady?

    She is nuts, no way she is going to be allowed to go up.

    Yeah, I couldn't beleave it last night when I watched the re-run. I don't care how determined you r. That is the least safe thing i may have ever seen (i think). What if she made it to the final step and held people up like last year. I think it would put to many other people at danger. RIGHT???
