Yes, the Civil Liberties Union will stop this practice in the very near future on the basis that the handicapped are descriminated against, but it will be an interesting run while it lasts.

But is it fair for the ACLU to interfere in the hiring practices of a company which has only one service ... to deliver messages to mountain climbers around the world?  Imagine if you are on the face of El Capitan and your wife is pregnant!  That would be information that you would want to reach you before a ramp was built to your location.  I am just bringing up the obvious arguements that this fine company will make in court to defend itself.

Who is this company, you may ask ... well, let's just say that they opened their operation on April 1st, 2007!!!  'Nuf Said!
