Spending the Night on Top of the World
« on: Oct 9 2003, 04:06 »

I think that the man featured in an article has an amazing story and is highly LUCKY to be alive. if the weather would have been worse, he and his partner could have died in an instant

and speaking of being 'on top of the world' without oxygen, does anybody know the name of the sherpa who stayed on the top of everest with o2 for 21 hours, all i remember is that he summited everest 10 times before falling into a crevace and dying.
