David Carter warns inexperienced climbers about Mt. Everest

You may have seen the Nova episode on David Carter’s climb to the top of Mt. Everest. Carter, of Indianapolis, knows just how dangerous the climb is and the risk that many more people have been taking this year that has caused a traffic jam near the summit.

Now hundreds of people have paid the $11,000 to get a permit from the Nepalese government, and some that are going up may not be experienced with high altitudes. Carter said that experience is necessary for survival at that height.
