Quotes

"A good sherpa can earn between $4,000 to $6,000 in pay in one season," says Anker. "but it is extremely dangerous work."
"It was just a matter of time," said renowned mountaineer Conrad Anker to National Geographic . "the khumbu is probably the most dangerous single place in the climbing world. you can just sit at base camp during the day and watch avalanches roar down right over the climbing route. it scares everyone."
"It's essentially a game of Russian roulette," says Anker. "there is nowhere to run, nowhere to hide."
