In a landslide the EverestNews climber of the year is Dan Mazur along with his teammates: Andrew Brash, Myles Osborne and Jangbu Sherpa as voted by readers of EverestNews.com. Never before has any climber or group of climbers gotten such a one sided vote.
In a day and on a mountain where so much is about oneself, these 4 men gave up the summit on the highest mountain in the world to stop and save a man they did not know. They risked their lives in stopping and spending an amount of time that most commercial guides would have said on Everest would be unthinkable to feed, give oxygen, and assist Lincoln Hall to a point where he could come down the mountain and live.
Lincoln’s team had already declared him dead and called his wife. But Lincoln was not dead, he was very much alive and clearly just needed help….These 4 men helped: Dan Mazur, Andrew Brash, Myles Osborne, Jangbu Sherpa. They are the EverestNews.com climbers of the Year.
- If these fine climbers, so close to their ultimate goal in high stress conditions, can give up their summit, what can each of us do as we climb through our organizations and reach for our career summits?
