60 years ago today
« on: May 29, 2013, 07:44:23 AM »
    Sixty years ago today May 29th 1953, Edmund Hillary and Nepalese Sherpa Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Mt Everest. It was an amazing achevement for the day and it opened up the world of high altitude mountaineering.
    Sadly it also led to Everest becoming a zoo now where enough money will buy your way to the top.
