Everest Anniversary - First Ascent 60 Years Ago Today

Postby jeremy27 » Wed May 29, 2013 7:22 am

To celebrate the anniversary of the Hillary/Norgay first ascent of Everest I thought I would post a link to the relevant Time magazine article, available on Google Books. Skip to page 120 or scroll through all the ads for a couple laughs. Enjoy.
