    I wish it took longer. Either fewer rich dumbasses would put in the effort, or more of them would accidentally die along the way. Win-win

      Chinese built a modern highway to their side of the mountain. I think they were going to allow foreign climbers by now but didn't because covid shit. In 20 years there will be gondola to the top while Nepal is still a shithole. Great example of a stoner society vs. alcohol society btw, Nepal and China.

        yeah I doubt it, but I wouldn't put it past chinks to do some moronic shit like that just due to their hubris

        I can only hope that the inevitable disaster is caught on camera and uploaded

        I never thought of it that way. Is it really a coincidence that every stoner society that had it be permissible for most it’s existence and even now is poop and not good at all?

      Most of that is acclimatization. It's only about 2 days tops of actual climbing. Lhakpa Gelu Sherpa went from base camp to summit in less than 11 hours.

        This, if you aren’t a total pussy you can do it in a week tops. You only need the 40 days if you aren’t using oxygen. People that say Everest is hard forget that most people doing it now are rich morons

          Literally has nothing to do with Sherpas, although they are built different.
          In 1986 two Swiss dudes climbed the north face with no oxygen, ropes, or tents in 42 hours, then were back at the base camp 5 hours later. In 1996 Hans Kammerlander summited the north face in 16 hours 45 minutes with no oxygen. Then he skied down.
          Hell, fricking Edmund Hillary and Tenzig Norgay summited within 40 days of reaching Everest.

          My point is that it's 38 days of waiting around and breathing air, hoping for good weather, and 1-2 days of climbing. Not 40 days of climbing.

            yeah so there are a handful of genetic freaks who can handle it and for everyone else it takes a month. this is evidenced by the fact that you mention a few different people across like 80 years who managed speedruns when like 1000 people summit every year. for you and me it takes a month. your point is fricking stupid and you are stupid. quit pretending you are some climbing expert because you googled some records, you havent climbed a thing. youre a dumb idiot.

          >whats your point?
          His point was very clear: "[Everest] is only about 2 days tops of actual climbing"
          The Sherpa example is provided as a baseline for someone with no need to acclimatize.
          What's your excuse for missing the point?

          it's not acclimatization. nepalese and tibetans literally have mutations that allow them to process oxygen differently

          ESL? The post you're responding to did not claim Sherpas acclimatize. The point relies on the fact that they don't need to.

          Although as a side note: https://www.pnas.org/doi/10.1073/pnas.0701985104
          Interesting paper on the differences between Tibetans and Andeans, whose high-altitude adaptations evolved over 25,000 years and 11,000 years respectively

          Why don't we see Nepali marathon runners?

          Not much need to run long distances in the Himalayas. Meanwhile in East Africa you have the combination of higher elevation (not crazy high, but high enough) and also more opportunity and motive to run (terrain far less rugged, desolate and hostile than Himalayas). So all the best marathon runners come from Kenya and Ethiopia.

            they process low oxygen well or something like that. completely different

            marathon runners also have almost exclusively type 1 muscle fibers. marathon running involves more than just your lungs. the primary limitation is your muscles

            isn't that obvious? are you fat or soemthing?
