North Col of Everest or Bust

One of the guys at MarketWatch in our New York office, Rowan Hajaj, recently took off to go to the North Col of Everest. It's funny because I had met him a couple of times and the main thing that I was struck with was his British accent, not a spirit for adventure! :-) Obviously I was wrong.

Anyway, he has a blog from his trip. It's a good read, he's a much better writer than I.

I've several times thought it would be great to go to the Everest region. But whenever I hear the details I seem to change my mind.
