The tallest mountain on Earth, Mount Everest stands as the ultimate monolith to be conquered by climbers willing to pay up to $25,000 for a chance to make it to the top.

Instantaneous frostbite is possible and the lack of oxygen makes climbers bewildered and weak. Over 200 climbers who ascended Mount Everest never came down and some of their bodies have been lying on the mountain for over fifty years, but due to the temperature and low oxygen, they have been preserved as grisly markers for other more fortunate climbers. Due to the environment, it is next to impossible to recover these bodies.

Etna Volcano is one of the most active volcanoes in the world and is in an almost constant state of eruption. Although it can occasionally be very destructive, it is not generally regarded as being particularly dangerous, and thousands of people live on its slopes and in the surrounding areas.
