Why Not Summit?

I have been asked why I'm not going for the summit? After all, it's not really that much further.

Well, actually it is.

Once you get past base camp, you really need specialist skills like proper mountain climbing and ice climbing experience. You also ought to have specialist equipment, like oxygen. You also need about 3 spare months (due to weather restrictions and such) and £40k.

I have none of the above.

How much is a helicopter ride from the base camp to the summit?

I have no idea but I can guarantee that that too is beyond my means.
