    After undertaking an intense workout regimen, Homer becomes a buffed-out specimen of a man. With the help of his gym buddy Rainer Wolfcastle, Homer becomes stronger and leaner than ever. He soon attracts the attention of Brad and Neil, two executives from the company that makes Powersauce health bars. Brad and Neil enlist Homer to climb to the top of the Murderhorn, the tallest, most forbidding mountain in Springfield, as a promotional stunt for Powersauce bars. With the help of two sherpas, Homer embarks on the arduous climb. Under his own power, Homer can barely make it halfway up the mountain. But while he sleeps, the two sherpas drag his sleeping bag behind them and get him to the top. When Homer discovers that the sherpas have been carrying them, he fires them and continues up to the peak. He doesn't quite make it, but he does manage to drive a stake into one of the Murderhorn's plateaus and cause the peak to collapse, making the spot where he is standing the default top of the hill. His climb is a success, sort of.
