I love that one of the most established historical figures still can get questioned...There are no facts after all, only discourse
I kind of doubt Hilary was part of a lucky pair to be chosen. It was his trip. No one else of the 200 would've bothered to go on their own or all together in a group without him.
This isn't true. It was Sir John Hunt's expedition, deputy-led by Charles Evans; and within that expedition, Hillary and Tenzing weren't even the first climbing pair to assault the summit, but the second.
Now, neither Tenzing nor Hillary were "just" lucky; they were the strongest climbers on the team.
Incidentally, one of only two Bond films I've actually seen.
