Mountains have always lured man.
It is more than the view from the top,
it is the challenge of the trail to the top.
At some point, even a well built trail is tough to trod like when you're high enough that your brain is gasping for more air that isn't quite there. At that point, using supplemental oxygen is not a sign of weakness, it's a tool, like crampons, 'biners,and rope, part of the mountaineers bag of tricks to deal with objective hazards like, falling, or avalanches, or High Altitude Pulmonary Edema where your lungs fill with fluid 'til your drown from the inside out.
When you head for the mountains you know these hazards exist and the rules of the road may not provide mercy for mistakes. They are implacable. The mountains don't care. They strike even the experienced with brutal randomness. This is the challenge mountaineers take on gladly. The consequences can be severe. So are the rewards.
