Sounds like a big stink over nothing.

That's what matters.

I climb for myself (this is not to be misconstrued as not caring for other's safety, merely that I climb for my own spiritual reasons), not for anyone else. It appears to be the same for him. Let others be bothered over whether or not a person has stood on an essentially meaningless peace of ground. It's their time that they're waisting over being bothered.

Oh, you were there too?  Come to think of it, I think I saw both of you guys around Camp 4.  Wink

Let there be no further doubt.  Stangl confessed.  Blamed it on a altitude/exhaustion related delirium that made him believe he was on the summit.

Harumph.
