This type of mountaineering does little for me. The true Himalayan climbers have proven again and again that large scale expeditions are no longer necessary and mountains can be attained by fair means. While the goal may be lofty, the means to achieve it are outdated. On another note, think about the resources that are going to be wasted in an attempt to do this. I mean couldn't he have just donated the 3 million dollars to the charity.
