Lots of guys have suggested climbing this Everest, or a siimilar one.

1) Find the mountain.
2) Find a sherpa.
3) Climb the mountain.

Everyone seems to stop somewhere before step 3 is started.

Some problems are:

1) Identifying which patterns might exist in general.
2) Figuring out that one (or which one) might apply in this position.

These are both really really hard, aren't they?
