Yeah, that's not correct.

I take it you've never worked on a drill rig, seen the terrain of Everest, or thought more than 2 minutes about any of this. Explain how you will get a drill rig up the mountain and drilling on 45 slopes. Or drill to bedrock by hand.

Please also show your calculations for the forces that will be applied to these structures by the moving glaciers, what kind of material is needed to resist these forces, and how deep the supports must be. No hand waving - you say it can be done, prove it.
