I have a new hero. The world changes for the better because good people like Luis Benitez won't stand idly by and watch evil win without a fight. I've watched commercial mountaineering, especially in the Himalaya, become a complete circus. Good to know there's still some REAL men and women taking people up these hills. God bless you Luis and the sacrifices you've made. Your stand will not be in vain!

Truly sad. I would love to hear Russ's side of the story? Another example of money and commercialism winning.
