I found this story over at MountEverest.net earlier, and it gave me quite a chuckle. It’s a short but sweet article on the role of the basecamp manager on big mountain expeditions, along with some humoerous tales of these under appreciated, unsung heroes. There names never get mentioned when the climbers summit, but they’d have a much harder time making it to the top without them. Fun and interesting read.
