Provides a brief look into the base camp at Everest. Several teams are featured. The conclusion seems to be that many people climb Everest for the wrong reasons, i.e., simply because it's the highest peak. Many are not mountaineers, but the local guide community & equipment suppliers are eager to aid anyone - for a price. Everest is a victim of it's own mystique, with traffic jams, fixed ropes, & overburdened camp areas. The 40 days at base camp name is the average number of days that the average climber takes to acclimate & summit the mountain. Too bad they weren't there on April 27, 2013 to document the brawl at Camp II.
