  2. 2. • Sixty years ago today New Zealand mountaineer Sir Edmund Hillary andNepalese Sherpa Tenzing Norgay made the first confirmed ascent of theworlds tallest peak which reaches 29,029 feet. Since then thousands ofpeople have made the attempt, with many perishing. Just last week 80-year-old Japanese mountaineer Yuichiro Miura became the oldest person to reachthe summit for the third time, although he said that he nearly died on thedescent and that this would be his last time. The 1953 expedition that tookHillary and Norgay to the top ended with a stay of just 15 minutes, withNorgay leaving chocolates in the snow and Hillary leaving a cross that wasgiven to him by Army Colonel John Hunt, the leader of the British expedition.-- Lloyd Young ( 37 photos total)• Source : boston.comClick to continueJune 2, 2013 2
