Why Do People Climb Mt. Everest?
Paper details:
Krakauer informs us earlier in his book that, “The slopes of Everest are littered with corpses.” Most people would argue that the idea of spending $65,000 for a precarious attempt at climbing Mt. Everest that may result in failure or even death seems not just foolish, but downright crazy. Yet, as Krakauer writes, “Once Everest was determined to be the highest summit on earth, it was only a matter of time before people decided that Everest needed to be climbed” and the number of climbers who seek the trophy of Everest continues to increase every year, resulting in a steady stream of traffic. What is behind the great lure of Everest? What kind of person feels compelled to take this risk and why? What role does the risk and need for adventure play in human psychology? How does this desire vary across different cultures?

Note: You don’t have to answer all of the questions above. Make your paper as narrow as you can. Don’t forget to 1) demonstrate the ability to develop a position. 2) demonstrate your ability to apply critical thinking skills. 3)demonstrate how correctly and honestly you can incorporate outside sources into your original, well-thought-out, and thoroughly analyzed topic that interests you. Use Into Thin Air by John Krakauer as one of the sources.
