Sadly, Sir Edmond Hillary passed away
Mountaineers, especially the ones that climb big mountains, are stereotypically very selfish to the point of stepping around a stricken climber. Hillary wasn't, and he dedicated his life to making the lives of the Shepas who make climbing the mountain possible. He raised money, built schools and had a huge impact on the quality of life in the Sherpa community.
I love the 3rd photo - the shine in his eyes is so touching.
