    but those sherpas do that shit all the time. and they lug gear for westerners for them so the westerners don't have to carry it. they make like three or four passes over the dangerous areas that the westerners only make one pass over (lol...passover).

    yet the westerners get all the glory?

    sherpas are the shit. and it's sad a bunch died in a avalanche.

    this fucker climbed with sir edmund hilarry. (lol...hilarry)

    but hilarry got all the glory.

    Sherpas are born and raised at high altitude

    it's much easier for them

    they're actually underachievers in a way

    even though "Sherpa" is an ethnic group not a surname, many Sherpas use "Sherpa" as an internationally recognized & respected surname, especially when dealing with those outside the Sherpa community.
