Some quick clips from our successful 2008 Mt. Everest summit.
With the Chinese government closing the mountain and a couple of harrowing rescues in the Death Zone, this was certainly an adventure to write home about.
Respect for Peak Freaks and the climbers, sherpas and guides who risked their lives not only for the summit, but to save another climber's life.
