whoa. actually, I missed the whole Stangl thing. That's just sad; i thought we went out there to challenge and find meaning in ourselves, not to invent opportunities for others' praise. still, i wonder how far up he actually did get - that in and of itself would be no mean feat; seems like there'd be no need to exaggerate a summit after coming so close on K2
