So climb on up and grab them. According to the article, “Mount Everest calls, but some sherpa guides say they will not climb again,” it states “A sherpa can make up to $6,000 for reaching the top of Mount Everest.” If a sherpa is able to make $6,000 for summiting Mount Everest, how much can a climber make?

I believe it is this because Jon Krakaeur flashes back to before the climb, during the climb, and after the climb. In the book, Krakaeur shows examples before the climb like on page 156, “At 1 a.m., thirty miles east of Rawlins, the strain of the day caught up to me.” He shows examples during the climb when he says “For two days I slogged steadily up the glacier without incident, congratulating myself for discovering such a clever path to the Thumb.” And he also shows examples of after the climb when he says, “ The euphoria, the overwhelming sense of relief, that had initially accompanied my return to Petersburg faded, and an unexpected melancholy took its place.” on page
“White is a sinewy 19-year-old with California charisma and a shock of red hair, which partly accounts for his nickname the “Flying Tomato. He is also snowboarding’s biggest mainstream star, and a winner of four gold medals at the Winter X Games. He began wearing a helmet a decade ago and became an instant pariah” (Higgins 1). The United States does not have laws for helmet use and resorts only recommend them, even professional contests don’t leave the choice to the rider(Higgins 1).
The Devil’s Thumb and Everest were both memoirs of two men conquering mountains, chasing their dreams, and living to tell the story. The Devil’s Thumb was written Jon Krakauer.

Everest, including a week ago's torrential slide that executed no less than 13 Sherpas who were setting ropes on the mountain's most well known climbing course. By the by, several individuals from many nations are at Base Camp right now, and numerous are wanting to make an offer for the summit of the world's tallest crest in the following couple of weeks, however those offers might be confused by news that Sherpas have chosen to clear the mountain for the season. Why does Everest keep on being so appealing, in spite of the costs, the group and the dangers? The answer likely varies for every climber, and studies recommend that

In survival you need to have knowledge. For example, when people climb mountains they know what they will need to do in case of an emergency. In the article “Everest” , Beck Weathers said, “I had an innate awareness that if the calvery was going to come rescue me they would already have been there. If I didn’t stand up, I realized I was going to spend eternity on that spot.” That meant he knew when the mountain collapsed that somebody would have been there
In the article, “Anatoli Boukreev ( Responds to Krakauer ), Anatoli Boukreev disputes the topic of his critical, odd decisions and actions on Mount Everest on May 10,1990.
