    That's an awesome achievement! Good luck to the second team on their summit attempt.

    They always say getting to the top is the easy part. Getting back down safely is the hard part. Watching the Discovery channel's, "Everest Beyong the Limit" show is pretty enlightning on how difficult it is to summit.

    This is some achievement no doubt. But how hard is it to climb everest now with all the guides and sherpas?

    Deadly. If you think it becomes easier, give it a try. Along the way, try to count the frozen bodies of the climbers and you may also find some that are still alive, but going to die soon.

    If you watch Discovery's, "Beyond the Limit", you'll know how hard and deadly it is.

    Well never mind about the guides and sherpas.

    The members must be very fit, physically and mentally to do the job. And the determination to bring honour home.

    My experience during a tour in SiChuan (near Tibetan) where the altitute was 5050m, almost 2/3 of those in the bus start using Oxygen.

    Well done again,.

    No big deal. Since it is so dangerous, they shouldn't of gone there.
