The Usual Suspects

This season, among other dubious firsts, Mount Everest will see a summit bid by the youngest climber, 13-year-old Jordan Romero, and the first attempt by a climber with an artificial hip, 65-year-old Don Healy. One bright spot: Draper, Utah–based Apa Sherpa, who first summited the peak in 1990 with Rob Hall, is going for his record 20th summit—and plans to build a school in his home village of Thame, Nepal, to boot.
