Unhappy Everest hero Sir Edmund Hillary dies

RIP

Sir Edmund Hillary, the first climber to scale the world's highest peak, Mount Everest, has died aged 88.

New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark described the explorer as a heroic figure and said all New Zealanders would deeply mourn his passing.
Sir Edmund's health had reportedly been in decline since April, when he suffered a fall while visiting Nepal. He was the first man to climb the 8,850m (29,035ft) peak, with Tenzing Norgay, on 29 May 1953.

Rest in peace.

I met him about 10 years ago. Definitely hard as coffin nails, we'll have to make sure the younger generations remember stuff like that. When tough bastards did shit that noone else could do, without worrying about what would happen if something went wrong.

HAIL TO THE KING!!
