    Dan Fredinburg, the head of privacy for GoogleX
    and a Google adventurer, died on Saturday morning as a result of a head injury from the Mt. Everest avalanche, his sister posted on her brother's Twitter and Instagram accounts.


    "This is Dans little sister Megan. I regret to inform all who loved him that during the avalanche on Everest early this morning our Dan suffered from a major head injury and didn't make it. We appreciate all of the love that has been sent our way thus far and know his soul and his spirit will live on in so many of us," Fredinburg's sister, Megan, posted. "All our love and thanks to those who shared this life with our favorite hilarious strong willed man. He was and is everything to us. Thank you."

    The Google Adventurer's LinkedIn account described his role at Google as "Head of Privacy for Google[x]," "Manage Product Management team for Google's Privacy team," and "Lead Google Adventure Team."

    Nepal suffered a 7.8 magnitude earthquake on Saturday that shook the central area between Kathmandu and Pokhara and triggered avalanches on Mt. Everest. Fredinburg's death is among at least 10 deaths on Everest as a result of the quake.

    No. I'll have to check it out. I just know how clogged it is up there, due to every dick with a few hundred k in the bank, buying their way to the top.

    Everest is old news. they say the "new Everest" is solo crossings of the Atlantic by kayak.

    "In the summer of 2000 he set out on the North Atlantic Kayak Challenge, paddling by himself, with no back-up or support boat. He set off from St John’s, Newfoundland in a specially designed 27-foot kayak, with the intention of crossing the North Atlantic and reaching Ireland several months later. Unfortunately, a faulty valve caused his boat to fill with water and sink, meaning that he was forced to spend 36 hours in the near-freezing Atlantic waters before being rescued.
    Despite this obvious setback, Pete returned to Canada the following year and this time completed the journey without serious incident, eventually arriving in Ireland 76 days after starting out. In overcoming this challenge, he not only became the first person ever to kayak across the Atlantic solo and unsupported, but he also raised much-needed funds for two separate children’s hospices. His book Kayak across the Atlantic gives a no-holds-barred account of this arduous but exciting journey."

    100k are the low rent people. There are luxury climbs where the Sherpas do all the carrying and dangerous work, they setup these creature comfort camps, serve 5 course meals on the climb, etc. Of course, many Sherpas die providing these services.

    People playing around like these climbs aren't deadly serious affairs
