Hero: Sherpas

Seriously, these dudes don't ever get enough credit. It's always the pasty white rich European that gets the props that he or she climbed Everest. Dude... these guys climb Everest like you or I eat a bowl of cereal. And they do it carrying half of the rich honky's stuff, too. This dude on the right has reached the summit of Everest sixteen times.

Sixteen times.
