    The Climb

    1325 words - 6 pages

    I have this fear. It causes my legs to shake. I break out in a cold sweat. I start jabbering to anyone who is nearby. As thoughts of certain death run through my mind, the world appears a precious, treasured place. I imagine my own funeral, then shrink back at the implications of where my thoughts are taking me. My stomach feels strange. My palms are clammy. I am terrified of heights. Of course, it's not really a fear of being in a high place. Rather, it is the view of a long way to fall, of rocks far below me and no firm wall between me and the edge. My sense of security is screamingly

    K 2

    K2 They call it “The Savage mountain:” it is the second highest peak in the world to Mt. Everest. The local name of K2 is Chogori, which in Balti language means the king of mountains. This name is little known outside of Pakistan. It is, therefore, desirable that the name K2 be used. Various expeditions, including many American expeditions, have made quite a few unsuccessful attempts. K2 is a rocky mountain up to 6000 meters, beyond which it becomes an ocean of snow. The K2 peak is situated on the Pak-China border in the mighty Karakoram Range. The traditional route to its base camp goes

    FROM: ENIFOGHOR KAGHO-OMOMADIA TO: PROF. DAVID ANSIAU DATE: 8th DECEMBER, 2011 RE: THE EVEREST TRAGEDY. 1. Why do you think Rob Hall did not enforce or follow the 2 p.m. turnaround time on the day of the summit push?

    Into Thin Air Speaker 1. “I’d written more than sixty pieces for Outside over the previous fifteen years[…]” (27). a. Jon Krakauer is obviously a credible writer. If he’s written over sixty pieces in fifteen years for a famous magazine they must trust his writing enough to keep publishing it. Although this is not an article for a magazine it’s pretty much the same deal; he wrote credible material to tell us about something that happened. This started as a published article anyway, so it has to be credible. 2. “During the thirty-three years I’d called myself a climber, I’d under
