Brawling on Everest

Christof Koepsel

The first rule of Everest Fight Club: don't talk about Everest Fight Club

You might think brawling at 24,500 feet above sea level is a bad idea. You are likely not a Sherpa, and do not take climbing etiquette as seriously as Sherpas do. Knock some ice onto them while climbing, and you will receive a visit at your tent, altitude and lack of oxygen be damned.

Later in the day, a furious group of Nepalese stormed up towards the climbers' tents and pelted them with stones until the men came outside, after which a loud argument ensued and punches were allegedly thrown.

"It was terrifying to watch -- they nearly got killed," the eyewitness said.

Note: the picture with this article is the closest thing we have to a climbing photo because pictures of people boxing at 24,000 feet, believe it or not, are very, very rare.
