Not worth the risk

Is it really a smart idea to climb a 14,000-foot plus peak alone? In the middle of winter? It seems pretty selfish to me because of what could happen to the climber, and what the climber is going to put their family and friends through, and most importantly, what they could put a rescue team through.
