People with stars in their eyes. (as in not paying attention)
Everest obv is >8ooom, crazy weather, crowded.
Hood has falling rock/ ice, evil falls left and right, crowds
Even "pros" fall every year. For an 11,000ft mountain...
I mean, that doctor a few years ago got knocked off by a falling basketball sized chunk of rock. What are the odds? All the surface of a mountain and it hit his three square feet...
They said the other day there were 100 permits given for the summit. I counted 30 on the big ol Pikers Peak slope and it seemed like it was a lot. I couldn't imagine 30 people on Hoods little route, and that's just the beginning.
Its just not appealing to me I guess.
