When Ed Viesturs appeared on Comedy Central's Colbert Report back in March, he probably didn't expect to make any big ascents or pushes for a summit. But he came prepared just the same: In addition to his usual ice axe, pack, ropes, and snowshoes, he also brought along movies, trail mix, and a whole bunch of screaming metal!

Tougher than climbing Everest? Weathering Colbert's endless onslaught of sarcasm. Well done, Ed.
