In 1988, Jean-Marc Boivin of France descended from the top in just 11 minutes, paragliding. http://www.mnteverest.net/history.html
Erhard Loretan and Jean Troillet made the fastest descent of Mt. Everest by sliding 8,000 feet down on their butts. It took 3 ½ hours.
All the words in this quiz begin with "long". Adding another word to the end of long will create an entirely new word. I will give the meaning of the new word and you must indicate what word needs to be added.
