The problem had been worse by the large number of climbers who want to meet their goal on climbing Everest.

Many health problems for humans and animals would occur if any point on Earth was either 36,201 ft under ground or 29,029 ft in the air. Another problem(or benefit, depending on how you at look it), is that if every point on Earth is either 29,029 ft above sea level or (-)36,201 ft below sea level there would be no point of going to Mount Everest or Challenger Deep. They would no longer be ‘special’ or a tourist worthy place. Lot’s of people go certain places because of natural landforms that have form there.

In chapter two it takes place before any of the events that happen in the book, and chapter two is just some background information about Mount Everest. But in chapter two it raises emotional level because it also goes over how expeditions and regular people have died on the summit.
This clearly shows his ignorance to human fulfilment of accomplishing great things if we hadn’t “stuck a flag” we wouldn’t have put a man on the moon, discovered the Americas and uncovered the once opaque ocean’s secrets and wonders. Surely, Philip can’t be unaware of brilliant human discoveries and accomplishments throughout history and how far we have come as not only a society, but as a species.

Although two of the most difficult and intense climbs include the Devil’s Thumb in Alaska and Mount Everest, the tallest mountain on earth. “Everest,” by Erik Weihenmayer and “The Devils Thumb,” by Jon Krakauer have some similarities and some differences in terms of the author’s perspective, organization structure, and tone and word choice.
