I Was Drawn into the Joys of Trouserless Peaking by the Great George Mallory

Posted on: October 1, 2007

"At last. Everest has finally been conquered by the Nude Mountaineering Society." That's the first line of the article, which you can read here.

Firstly, I wasn't actually aware that there was a Nude Mountaineering Society. I suppose I shouldn't be surprised by this state of affairs, considering. Secondly, the fact that there is an uproar surrounding the story, mostly from the Nepal Mountaineering Association (who appear to be a clothed Mountaineering Association), shouldn't, and doesn't surprise me. Thirdly, well, just read the thing, it'll save us all valuable time that I would otherwise take up by ranting.
