Uphill Battle

“Xia suffered severe frostbite on both his feet and eventually had to have them amputated. Twenty years later, he developed lymphoma and both legs were amputated just below the knees.” From Outside: Double Amputee Summits Everest. “After four previous attempts, the 70-year-old Chinese climber finally stood on the summit on Monday.” (Sisyphus had an easier climb than this guy…)
