Daniel Mazur in considered to
be one of the top climbers in the world. Climbing Magazine has given him the
title of, “most successful American to ever launch an expedition”. In October of
1991 he reached the summit of Mt. Everest by an “accident”. He met a Russian
climber, Roman, in a climbing shop in Kathmandu. Daniel had come to Kathmandu
hoping to find a climbing partner and climb a peak. Roman was headed up Everest
with a primarily Russian group led by Anatoli Boukreev and Vladimir Balyberdin.
The expedition agreed to let
Daniel join the group and climb with Roman, what they did not tell Daniel was
that his climbing partner had suffered childhood tuberculosis and only had the
use of one lung, no one expected Roman and his climbing partner to reach the
summit. They did, and Roman became the first Soviet Georgian and the second
oldest climber to reach the top of Everest.
