The Ancient Historian

Ancient history, mountaineering, cycling and other outside adventures

More Everest waiting

Today’s dispatch. May 11, 2009, from Firstascent on the weather….a reason why high altitude mountaineering is not always the best sport for a movie, but it seems to me that so much of mountaineering is about inner strength-way better than action adventure nonsense, well, unless we are talking about the Eiger sanction :-). To see glimpses of the Firstacsent team in action is really interesting, and I for one really appreciate this team’s video dispatches. Great stuff!
