You thought climbing Everest was hard? Try being a Sherpa....pictured here carrying ladders to place across the massive crevasses in the notoriously dangerous Khumbu Icefall. Yes, you could say they are badass. I took this photo in 2004 on an expedition with David Breashears and Ed Viesturs. It was an an amazing and eye opening expedition. The 2013 season is in full swing and the drama from the last few days is a reminder of how climbing Everest can bring the best and the worst out of people. Let's hope the rest of the season is safe and people rise to their best. @thephotosociety
