Title: Hlep needed on climbing Everest
Post by: sunset on Jul 13 2005, 00:47
I am interested in climbing Everest, I am wondering whether this is something may possible for me to achieve.

I have been to a few snow mountains here in US, like Shasta, Rainier, and Kilimanjaro in Africa.

I am wondering:

How long will it take to train for this climbing? a year, a few years?

what kind of trainings do I need?

What kind of skills and physical condition do I need to climb Everest, e.g. mountaineering? ice climbing? ......

In general, how difficult do you think climbing Everest is?

How much and how long does it cost you to climb it?

Anyone is interested/plan to climb Everest?

Thanks!
