Unless you’re Kenton Cool, a man who’s been up Everest 38 million times, summiting the world’s tallest mountain is kind of a big deal.

And that’s where this remarkable story comes in. Reports have emerged that suggest a couple from India might just have attempted the ultimate shortcut to the top of Everest…via Photoshop.
