RIP George Lowe - 1924-2013

George was the last surviving member of the 1953 Everest team. He went on to many more accomplishments in his lifetime, including making films (The Conquest of Everest and Antarctic Crossing), establishing the Sir Edmund Hillary Himalayan Trust, and of course, completing more expeditions. What a life!

RIP Mr. Lowe. One of the very few Old, Bold Mountaineers.
