Ahhh...... My point exactly.

If this was all just meant to accomplish the "Goal" that you state, then that's cool.
But, what really gets me about his whole gig, is all the pre, during and certainly the post climb International Media ATTENTION that they seem to be getting. Why do you think that is?
And a "Team Spokesman"? WTF is that all about?
I say cuz it's all worth a cool couple of million bucks in after climb advertisements, sponsorships and book revenues... that's why.
And all this competition crap.... how far does one go with that?
I am waiting to hear that some pregnant Chinese lady climber gives birth on the summit to "Officially" claim it for her nation and set the record for that event.
But I guess that's what happens when you join in on the "Tribe".
Go get that record and send it baby.....
WTF happened to going out and just climbing?
The Tribe. That's what happened. More, Bigger, Fastest, Youngest, Hardest etc etc etc.....
Oh, don't forget to watch it all on these shows in the coming weeks....
What happened to just going out for a quiet day at the crag with a couple of buddies?
