Everest Summit – summary written on May 27, 2010
It has been a few days since the summit, but I’m still trying to digest the fact that I just climbed Everest. Was it hard?
It depends. If you have read the previous blog “Why Everest is hard” and after two months of suffering through pain, you are still healthy/strong, determined, and positive, then maybe Everest is not that hard for you.
When I set the goal to climb Everest a few years ago, I saw it as a goal reachable by anyone. After training hard, I have finally achieved my goal! Now it feels surreal that I have just climbed Everest!
So, what does it takes to climb Everest? My thoughts…
- Positive Attitude
- High Pain Tolerance
- Strong will/desire
You should be well above average in all four, and be in the top 10% in at least two categories. When my life slows down, I shall start writing more about Everest and will also post more pictures! So stay tuned…
