Sherpa Tenzing

Tenzing Norgay, better known to many as Sherpa Tenzing. He and Edmund Hillary were the first two men known to have climbed to the summit of Mount Everest. Hillary tends to get most of the credit, but that was not the intention of any of the other members of the expedition, and its leader, Colonel Hunt, insisted at the time that “They reached it together, as a team.”
