Agreed, he was a great climber & man. After he climbed the big E., he built a bunch of schools in Nepal for the locals. I did some ice climbing with Tenzing's son way back in the 80's (great guy too).

I have read some stuff and seen some film on the life of Sir Edmund Hillary

it must have been amazing

before the quest to get a man on the moon

the world gathered around the story of the man who climbed to the top of the world

I have heard that Tenzing signed something saying he did not reach the summit first...
