I have just read the account of the double amputee who climbed Everest. I am frankly appalled, on the way to the summit they passed a man "hours from death". I assume our heroic no legger (I have just one) had a few blokes with him. Was getting to the summit more important than saving a life? It is not as if Everest has never been climbed before. I salute the amputees spirit and determination but I am sickened by the lack of moral courage displayed. I hope that our chaps who will be attempting the summit soon do not do this type of thing, far better to fail and act morally than to succeed with the knowledge that you left a stranger to die.
