But they bring it down to a much lesser altitude peak by carrying the drug making it not 29000 feet. But then some people cry and say that without the drug they could not do it. And I say so what and that one is cheating by using it. I cannot run a 3:45 mile, but do I decide to put on some rocket pack that permits me to do it. No! Same thing with Everest. Most people do not have the plumbing to do it on their own (without the drug cannisters) and therein lies the beauty of the mountain. It's summit should be trod only by those elite climbers who have the will and altitude capability to do it. This is logical. The summit is not for everyone just as the sub 4 minute mile. Why degrade it?
