The Annapurna massif has about thirteen peaks which are over 7,000 meters and sixteen more that are over 6,000 meters high. For this reason many climbers have been attracted to the different peaks of the Annapurna massif. But what makes Annapurna more dangerous than Mt. Everest?

He’s superior; he’s stronger, has greater efficiency and showcases a higher intellect as a rider. For him to fall once is quite astonishing.

Safety of Skiers and Snowboarders Ski helmets are definitely better to be worn than not to be worn or to say it's better to safe rather than sorry. Helmets have saved lives of bicyclists, skateboarders, skaters and others because they are required to be worn. People who have gotten in accidents while wearing helmets were most likely very thankful that they were wearing a helmet.

I believe that there should be law that requires people to wear helmets when snow-skiing and snowboarding, no matter the age, because it is for their safety and to avoid extreme consequences if not worn.

You would still succeed by reaching the summit but the feeling of actually going the distance wouldn’t be there. To succeed is to achieve the desired aim or result.
At 11 years old, Brooke Raboutou shattered a world record, becoming the youngest and shortest person to climb 5.14b, a climbing route difficult enough to challenge even highly athletic people, especially if they have no experience climbing. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Her list of accomplishments is quite lengthy and makes me question how I spent my time as a child. For one, I didn’t break any world records – although I was the fastest kid on a tricycle on my block (that counts for something, right?)
