This is impressive. Specially when thinking that I will probably never
be able to do it.

But in the other hand, I heard that there is no water overthere.
And it is probably also too narrow for kitesnow.

So it is a pointless destination. :lol: :lol: :lol:

A Nepalese was probably 16 when he did it but he doesn't have a birth certificate so they are not sure.

Zeb Roche is the youngest European ... with a birth certificate. He also climbed to the summit again in 2001 with his wife, Claire Bernier, and they flew off on a tandem paraglider.

Bear Grylls (cool name) recently flew over the summit of Everest on a paramotor.

I predict John Silvester will be the first to fly a paraglider up to the summit of Everest ... if some mad French dude doesn't do it first.

And yes ... we suck.
