**Think about it:
Start paying close attention to how climbers and their support staff had to make tough moral decisions that often hinged on two choices: whether a person should live for himself or herself (SELFISHNESS) or try to help others despite consequences that could affect more than one person (SELFLESSNESS).
1. Taiwanese and South African teams won’t help Hall fix ropes so all can climb
2.. Sandy Pittman brings too much gear (cappuccino machine, for instance)
3. Those who have sex on the mountain offend both the Sherpas and the goddess.
4. Fischer's guide Anatoli Boukreev stays in bed while others climb. He comes up 5 hours later. Fischer had paid him $25,000 to be a guide.
1. Pete Schoening saving the lives of 6 others on K2 using The Belay (pg. 97-98)
2. Conrad Anker and Alex Lowe on Mt. McKinnley. Give up summit to rescue Taiwanese team and drag them down the mountain for evac.

Intro to Into Thin Air, the definitive, personal account of the deadliest season in the history of Everest by the acclaimed journalist and author of Into the Wild. (The novel can no longer be billed this way because April 2014 was the deadliest season in the history of Everest!). On assignment for Outside magazine, Krakauer, an accomplished climber, went to the Himalayas to report on the growing commercialization of the planet's highest mountain. Everest has always been a dangerous mountain. From the first British expeditions in the 1920s until 1996, one climber has died for ever 4 who have attained the summit. This shocking death toll has not put a damper on the burgeoning business of guided ascents, however, in which amateur alpinists with alarmingly disparate skills are ushered up the mountain for a $65,000 fee. To ascend into the thin, frigid air above 26,000 feet - the cruising altitude of a commercial jetliner - is an inherently irrational act. The environment is unimaginably harsh, the margin for error miniscule. Krakauer examines what it is about Everest that has compelled so many people - including himself - to throw caution to the wind, ignore the concern of loved ones, and willingly subject themselves to such risk, hardship, and expense.
