Performance enhancement

Filed under: Salute! — Lex @ 10:39 pm

I know flipall about mountain climbing other than that you can pretty much drive to the top of Mount Mitchell even with a dying constant-velocity joint (Tony remembers, don’t you, Tony?), but I figure there’s gotta be an outdoor gear store called The North Face for a reason. The reason, apparently, is that Mount Everest’s north face is a bad*ss climb and no one has ever gone straight up the middle of it, but a Russian mountain climbing Dream Team has begun the climb. At a news conference in February, the team members said they might or might not use oxygen and said they’d forgo any performance-enhancing substance except vodka.
