Wood was the first North American woman to summit Everest in 1986, and used oxygen to do so. She said some mountaineers want to separate themselves from less experienced climbers by making an already dangerous task even more challenging.

Ziebarth was last seen at 8,700 metres determined to descend under his own strength.
But that didn't prepare her for the phone call saying he had died.

"It's unreal," she said. "You never think it will happen to him."
Veteran mountaineer Sharon Wood of Canmore, Alta., didn't know Ziebarth, but said climbing the iconic mountain is becoming so commonplace that some attempt more difficult routes with fewer resources including trying to reach the summit without oxygen.
The idea is to make the climb as pure an experience as possible.
But more challenge means more risk.
"It was later confirmed by fellow climbers that his body now rests peacefully at the bottom of the third step, high on Mount Everest."
"There is a saying in the world of high altitude alpinism that when you make it to the top, you are really only half way there," Wood said from Canmore, Alta.
"The most difficult part of climbing an 8,000 metre peak is getting back down again. You've given it everything you had to get to the top but you have been too high, too long. That is the problem."
Ziegler said she spent days in communication with base camp after Ziebarth was reported missing. Finally, a call came in that another climber had spotted a body.

There are reports that Ziebarth was the fifth person to die on the world's tallest peak this climbing season. About 300 people reached the top of the 8,849 metre high mountain this year many of them in the last few weeks.
"He was a very simple person and he didn't want to go there and use and abuse Sherpas," his fiancee, Christina Ziegler, explained Wednesday.
She said they both knew there were risks.
"I think I have a pretty good understanding of why he has to do it," she said. "When we started dating, he was already into mountaineering and had his life planned. Everest was his ultimate goal. I couldn't change that."
