The Hillary you can appreciate.



RIP, Sir Edmund. You did it first and did it best.

As he said awhile back...  
"I think the whole attitude towards climbing Mount Everest has become rather horrifying. The people just want to get to the top. They don’t give a damn for anybody else who may be in distress and it doesn’t impress me at all that they leave someone lying under a rock to die."

"There have been a number of occasions when people have been neglected and left to die and I don’t regard this as a correct philosophy. . . You can try, can’t you? This is the whole thing."
