Title: Closing Everest Poll Question
Post by: wozzak on Aug 16 2003, 00:11
I did not vote because non of the options fit my belief about the great mountain. I believe Everest should remain open, but only to experienced climbers. Non of those, you got big bucks, we will pull you up the mountain.

the mountains are not free at all, they are owned by countries. if a country wanted to close a mountain, they have every right to do so. long ago, mountains were commonly used as gifts in the the european countries, which means that the person owned them.
