Jordan was telling me the other day about a group of climbers who climbed Mt. Blanc and then constructed a hot tub on the summit. It was hard to believe until he sent me the link and I saw the photos.
Basically, this group (it would appear that they are Swiss) took apart a hot tub so they could each ascend the peak with a small chunk of hot tub on their backs. At the summit, they re-constructed it, fired up the burners to melt snow, and eventually– they had a hot tub party at 15,000′. Funny how at home the Euros can be in the mountains, just look at some of their trams and buildings they have built over the years. Sure hope nobody who thought that climbing Mt. Blanc would be the height of their climbing career arrived to see the hot tub there. For more photos and the full story:
