Actually - could be construed as GOOD news! Personally, I believe the infection we call "Summit Fever", occurring high on an 8,000er, may be one of the most relentlessly fatal conditions known! It takes balls to summit an 8,000er, but it takes BRASS balls to give up the summit and go down when it's just not right!

No doubt we'll hear from Carlos again in the future... and not in his obituary!

Peace,

Big Lew

I hope this isn't too dumb a question, but as a beginner I'm a little confused by part of the article.

"Bolotov in turn appeared in another set of news today, forwarded by Abramov's 7summits-club, stating that Denis Urubko in an interview with Kazakh site Sports.kz talked about his plan to climb Everest in alpine style via a new route together with Bolotov.

Alpine style climbs are usually done on lower peaks, but a few climbers - such as Denis - have mastered to summit 8000ers this way. "If we manage to climb in alpine style on Everest, I think it will be a significant event, a new word in the history of mountaineering," Denis said. "For my self-realization as an athlete, it is very important.""



When they say "alpine style" for a peak like Everest, does this mean no camps up on the mountain? They will carry everything they need by themselves from base camp? And if that is the case, how fast can they climb Everest in this manner? Wouldn't weather be even more critical climbing like this since you couldn't carry much food or anything else for that matter and much time trapped at high elevation by the weather could be fatal even faster?

Sorry if I'm way off base here.
