What It’s Like to Climb Mount Everest Without Bottled Oxygen

Just as importantly, here’s what it’s like to train for the feat. September 17, 2019 2 min read Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

The punishing consequences of attempting to summit Everest can range from frostbite to death, even under ideal circumstances at such an altitude, and 2019 alone has so far claimed 11 lives.
