    It’s also worth including Krauker’s quote:

    “Above the comforts of Base Camp, the expedition in fact became an almost Calvinistic undertaking. The ratio of misery to pleasure was greater by an order of magnitude than any mountain I’d been on; I quickly came to understand that climbing Everest was primarily about enduring pain. And in subjecting ourselves to week after week of toil, tedium and suffering, it struck me that most of us were probably seeking above all else, something like a state of grace.”

  • Welcome back!
    Looking at these images (and remembering the few days I spent in Tibet a few years ago) I can only image how much you’ll miss this place…..wish you luck in your new projects.
