What is Success?

This is a favourite story that Dan likes to tell.
When hiking up Mt. Aconcagua Dan & Adam met a man hiking down and Dan asked him if he had been successful. The man replied that that depended on how you viewed success. He had spent 5 days in a blizaard at high camp with very little food or fuel to melt water. He had survived and was hiking down the mountain. Was he successful?

What are your thoughts on the recent decision to potentially close down Everest to clean it up and in future restrict the number of climbers?

Do you see any solutions to the problems indicated?
