  • Hard To Miss...Or Not

    Interesting article. Having never been to that particular region of Asia, I can't confirm this, but I was always under the impression that the Hillary Step is visible from one of the base camps via telescope. Wouldn't that make it a pretty easy debate to solve? Anybody have any input on this?

      I JUST found that one as well. Yep, that's a different profile. It seems almost poetic that a rock feature which has been around for eons finally let go not long after its namesake departed.
