Everest Essay
Over the last week, the class has researched an ongoing moral dilemma that centers on summiting Mt Everest. Some believe that climbers should offer assistance to a climber that is experiencing medical difficulties even if it costs the climber offering assistance a chance to summit the mountain. Others believe that climbers are under no obligation to assist climbers in need of medical help. We have covered this topic extensively through the use of real life narrative and informative non-fiction articles.

Do you think that climbers should offer assistance to other climbers who are experiencing medical difficulties on Everest?

For this essay, assume that the climber that needs to make this decision is climbing with a guided group and paid $70,000 to the guide company. They are less than 3 hours from the top and this is the only chance the climber will have to summit the mountain.

Please choose a side of the argument and state your case in a well-developed 5 paragraph argumentative essay. You can use the notes on how to write a 5 paragraph argumentative essay in order to make sure that you include all of the parts of the essay. Finally, please label each part of your essay.
