Still, there are certain mountains that command respect from even the most experienced climbers, mountains that continue to inspire awe and anxiety decades after their first ascents.This article on the climbing world’s most dangerous mountains has a few interesting nuggets. Read a list of the world’s 9 most dangerous mountains for climbing.
#1. Everest, border between Nepal and China 8,848 metres (29,029 ft.)
More that 1,500 people have climbed the highest mountain in the world, with as many as 50 people or more reaching the summit on a single day. This congestion, when combined with Everest’s extreme altitude, makes it an undeniably dangerous objective.
