^ You should watch the movie. Nimsdaiís teams werenít ďhugeĒ. Yes, they did use oxygen but only above 8000m, they carried all their gear up the valley, and they fixed ropes for themselves on a bunch of the peaks. I doubt that there was any other way to do this feat. Just the logistics of planning 14 expeditions in one year is amazing.

I will, Galiwalker. I saw in his Wikipedia bio that he was a Gurkha. Donít they have kind of a reputation, going back to the days of British India, as the ďberserkersĒ of the British foreign regiments? That never surrender/fight to the death mentality; first to arrive, last to leave. This line from his bio is just incomprehensible: ďHe made his first major climb in 2012, reaching the summit of Lobuche East, without any previous experience as a mountaineer.Ē

They delve into that in the movie, as well as the fact that he was the first Nepali to join the British SBS (Special Boat Service...so naval commando).

I just discovered this guy by accident. Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes) loved his stuff. You can see more of it here: Richard's Poor Almanac Cul de Sac

I'm thinking of Dead Horse Point near Mazama as I watch this. Superb 10-point u-turn skills, and nerves of steel as well.

Posting this in honor of the closing of the 2022 Winter Olympics. Old school but pleasing as can be. ~z

Great memories. In my youth back then - hadn't cracked 20 yet - and other than hocky (just four years removed from the Miracle on Ice) I didn't give any credit to ice skating as a sport or Olympic event. I was all about the skiing (go Phil & Steve), bob sledding, and other action sports. For some reason I happened to be watching the Olympics "live" when the ice dancing came on, and I caught this performance and the build-up to it. Damn! I was mesmerized, and still remember it to this day.
